Someone from the community is currently working feverishly to complete this section of the trail guide. Don’t worry, it shouldn’t be long.
An easy 5 mile round trip out and back hike to the old M.A.S.H. site in Malibu Creek State Park.
Start out on Mulholland Drive just west of Las Virgenes. Park just on the other side of the first bridge you drive over and the trailhead is on the south side of the road.
Start your hike following the dirt road just past the gate. You'll quickly get to a steep hill and once at the top you will be overlooking Malibu Creek. Take either trail to get down to the wide dirt road that runs alongside the dry Malibu Creek. At about .75 miles you will come to a junction, there is a sign directing you to the right to get to the M.A.S.H. site, you will now be on Craig's Road. You'll begin a steady climb up a steep hill. While the climb is steep, it's only about .25 miles long. (If you want a short excursion from the route take the trail to Century Dam at the top of the hill)
Continue down Craggs Rd for another .25 miles to the creek crossing. You will see a big concrete pad that used to be the bridge across the creek and was burned out in the Woolsey fire. At the end of the concrete "bridge" you'll have to jump down about 3 feet to the sand at the creek and cross the creek on some logs, they are unstable so watch your footing. Once across the creek stay to the singe track trail on your right. The trail will wind along the creek through many small boulders, watch your step along this portion of the trail. After about a half mile of hiking through the rocky single track the trail will open back up to a wide dirt road. At this point the M.A.S.H. site is just around the corner. Enjoy a break, taking in the scenery and then retrace your steps back to Mulhollan Dr parking area.
