Calabasas Peak

A late afternoon hike.  I accessed Calabasas Peak via Calabasas Cold Creek Trail (aka New Secret Trail) and Calabasas Motorway.

IMG_6104   This area is right next to Red Rock Canyon.  While the rocks aren’t as plentiful there are some interesting finds.

Beautiful tree – twisted and gnarled

IMG_6210     IMG_6215     IMG_6222   There are a couple of ways to get to the top of the peak – just pick one of the trails that heads straight up.  Photo 2 – The rock pile at the top.

On my way back now – the light was great.
