HIKE CANCELED DUE to RED FLAG WARNING
Please see Red Flag Warning for more information.
7 MRT Loop – Moderate to Strenuous (1,500′ elevation gain/loss)
Meet at 8 AM near Donut Delite at the corner of Madera and Royal.
Our hike begins at the point where the Santa Monica Mountains Backbone Trail (BBT) crosses Yerba Buena Road at Triunfo Pass (2,100′). We’ll follow the Mishe-Mokwa Trail as it climbs westward and then drops into a shaded canyon; there will be views of the red sandstone Echo Cliffs, Boney Mountain, and Balanced Rock. After passing Split Rock the trail will take us up the mountain to a spur trail leading to Inspiration Point (2,800′) and then to the spur trail leading to Sandstone Peak (3,111′), aka Mt. Allen, the highest peak in the Santa Monica Mountains. After enjoying the spectacular views we’ll complete the loop back to the Mishe Mokwa Trail and our vehicles. Bring lunch and 2 to 3 quarts of water.
