Being stuck at home does­n’t mean you can’t leave your house. As long as you can find a way to social­ly dis­tance, you can appre­ci­ate the gifts G‑d, moth­er nature or the uni­verse has freely just plopped right into your back­yard. Our back­yard is the San­ta Mon­i­ca Moun­tains so we chose a short hike in Mal­ibu, part of the Back­bone Trail, Piu­ma Ridge.



There’s free lim­it­ed park­ing avail­able right off Las Vir­genes Rd. as it crests into Pacif­ic Coast High­way and turns into Mal­ibu Canyon Rd. There are sev­er­al trails to sort through.
