We started off in Topanga and headed down to Pacific Palisades through this trail. If you start up in Topanga at Trippet Ranch, the hike is easy, downhill, and very relaxing. We've never tried going up but it seems like it would be quite the workout. As you head down, you're faced with beautiful views from mountain to ocean. A great trail, and a prefect shortcut when you'd rather walk and avoid PCH!
