Great hike for a Saturday! There is potential to make this hike up to 10+ miles. It was neat to see the old MASH filming site. Nice change of scenery throughout the hike. The earlier you go, the less people. The trail starts getting busy around 8:30. Highly recommended!

This was my first hiking trip in a decade (since I was a Girl Scout) and it was beautiful. Very light and easy, brought my pup with me and he had a blast. Although I mistook the Calabasas Peak Trail for the Cold Creek Preserve a whole mile in, I made my way back down and found the correct trail. The sun didn’t come out till about 10, it was cool and misty and very friendly people on the trail. I would recommend for both dogs and kids, we even saw a harmless snake trek across the trail. Can’t wait to go back again!

Get there early to enjoy a nice, cool, easy hike and a beautiful lake at the end of the trail .

Great moderate hike for the whole family. Always nice to see the original M*A*S*H Site.

WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE. Loud, trash littered by the trail, and people playing music from their phones while walking on the trails. If you’re seeking solitude and a dip in the lake to cool off this is not the spot for you. Probably best to go on a very early morning. The location is beautiful, but the cons far outweigh the positive aspects in my opinion. Could probably be a better hike if you go further into nature away from the lake.

Like everyone else said, this hike has some pretty scenary but the end is a huge disappointment. I guess I should have read the reviews more carefully but you really just end up at a gate at the precipice of Malibu lake... So close, yet so far. Wish it would have ended up at the lake so I could check it out.

I would rate this as really easy. Mostly flat with one part that has a 10 minute incline you have to hike.

One way took me about an hour.

If you’re willing to go off trail a little bit, it’s the most fun spot in Malibu

Arrived at 8am. Easy trail with ok scenery but WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE for my liking. There were literally tours groups of 15+ on the trail. Impossible to have your own space and enjoy nature.

Great loop! Beautiful views and easy walkway (semi paved). Both the Rock Pool and Century Lake are well worth seeing!

You can stay on the main path, or veer off for little challenges. Great spot

Went off the main paths and traversed some steep hills. Did not make it to the caverns but will definitely return.

Beautiful after some rains with lots of green grass and a few native wildflowers popping up. A little unvaried and exposed so probably best as a trail run or bike ride and left to the cooler parts of the day.

Wide trail, plenty of room for hikers and riders. Rolling hills with low grade climbs.

Love the creek and openness of trail, where there early enough to enjoy the trail in peace and quietness. Also parked outside the parking lot and save $$$

Beautiful hike that starts with a gentle descent. Heavy rainfall earlier in the week left plenty of water in creek and everything green. Trails are well-maintained and there is shade for most of trail. Had to cross two small streams. Fun and will do again!

Great hike out and back... good climb but mostly gradual so not to steep

This is a great park. $12 day parking but the hikes are worth it. Beautiful and the MASH site was awesome! Most of the terrain was pretty flat.

An easy lop than can be done at a leisurely pace.
Note: My hike added a short extension that makes this a 5 mile loop. But AllTrails won't allow me to include that portion with it's write option so I've added Waypoints so you can see where that section is. This extra section is rated moderate and should be avoided if you have a stroller etc.

Easy

Very nice! Not hard at all so is good for kids.

Did a loop coming down from Liberty Canyon, which is the nicer side, though there's a lot of development going on that side and that may chance.
A pleasant hike but as mentioned in other reviews traffic noise from Las Virgenes Road takes some of the edge off and the section running parallel with Las Virgenes isn't very interesting.

For my second hike it was easy enough for both me and my husky(on leash). We got to see the lake and made the full circle back to the entrance. That last hill to the main street gets you heart going right at the end. There was a good amount of people for the time we went (nice people) and some people on bikes. Be mindful of the horse droppings as they are all over the trials.
