O: Hike through wildflowers at Malibu Creek State Park : Join us on this hike through Malibu Creek SP The park was the center of Chumash Native American life for centuries. The flowers should be in full bloom now. From the trailhead we will take the high road (Gorge Trail) to Rock Pool which is a 3.5 mi rt with a 150' gain. Upstream a short distance to the gorge, is one of the most dramatic sights in the Santa Monica mountains. Malibu Creek makes a hairpin turn through 400 ft volcanic rock cliffs and cascades into aptly named Rock Pool. The Swiss Family Robinson television series and some Tarzan movies were filmed here. Depending on the group we may go toward Century Lake, which is 4.5 mi rt, 200' elevation gain. and then continue on the fire road past the Lake where we will pass the location of the old set for MASH television series. The prominent Goat Buttes that tower above Malibu Creek were featured in the opening shot of each episode. Outing suitable for youngsters. All minors need to be accompanied by parent or legal guardian. Meet us at the park at 10:30 am. Take 405 to 101 N, exit Las Virgenes Road and continue 4 miles to park entrance. Possibility of $12.00 for parking. Bring lunch and a goodie to share, water, hat. Rain cancels.
