Bulldog & Backbone Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is the classic grand tour of Malibu Creek State Park’s rugged backcountry. Along the way you’ll tramp along the crestline of the Santa Monicas, circling high above the park’s most conspicuous landmarks. Mountain bikers, who use a slight variation of the route, typically make this a 3- or 4-hour task, but you’d better allow about double that amount of time on foot."
