Lovely walk down oak shaded lane, a stunning rock pool with vertical walls of volcanic rock, and a picturesque lake pretty enough for a calendar. An easy hike with lots of variety. At the Rock Pool, watch rock climbers attempt to scale the Planet of the Apes wall, were the movie of the same names was filmed. When you reach Century lake, make sure to take the path down to the lake, its a truly spectacular place to stop for a picnic. Those with more energy can continue on several miles past Century lake to the site of the old M.A.S.H television series.

This was an easy, short hike. The fall colors were in full bloom when I went, and the temperature was nice. Would definitely do again. Note: this is in the Malibu Creek State Park and there is a $12 entrance/vehicle fee to take this trail. Also, the trail starts off on Crags Road (or a name like that). Happy hiking!

Not moderate hike at all. Very easy and fun for the whole family!

The current map will first take you to Century Lake and then the mash site followed by the bed around the other side of the lake. If you climb up on the rocks you can get a good view of the lake, dam and landscape. Plus there's a small cave up at the top!

On the way back you'll follow the trail to the rock pools. Fun place to rock climb!
