That trail leads to?
Day-to-day life often has me driving through the pretty and scenic Topanga Canyon which links the San Fernando Valley to Pacific Coast Highway. Just below the summit there is a parking lot, I must have driven past it a thousand times, today I decided to park and see where the trail led to.
The clouds were low and the air was wet with an early mist and with this in mind I left my pocket camera in the car. The trail dipped down starting on a wide path but soon narrowed into a single-track which carved its way through to blooming spring flowers, lulling you into a false sense of serenity, the trail then takes a sharp upward turn to bring you out on the ridgeline. Here you are faced with a choice; left or right. I choose left and followed the rolling ridgeline which varied from rough blacktop to fireroad. Time was against me; isn't it always, so after 30 minutes of exploring I turned around and headed back the way I came with a small loop at the end. Go on let the explorer inside of you out.
