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.
What do you do when your kids don't want to hike with you? Take them anyway. Here's a video of how this plan worked out for us.
