Another hike off of Mulholland Highway and right across from Cistern Trail in Malibu Creek State Park. This one runs in the opposite direction. I hadn’t given it any thought but right before my hike I wondered why they call this “Phantom” Trail. Alas, I saw no phantoms. The hike was a pleasant one and well marked.
The trail eventually descends, slowly at first and then sharply in places. I passed an enormous nest by the side of the trail.
