Join us for an easy-to-moderate hike in Corral Canyon Park. The Sara Wan Trailhead is 14 miles north of Santa Monica near Malibu Seafood Fresh Fish Market along the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).
Corral Canyon is the last undeveloped canyon that flows freely to the ocean. Its 2.5-mile-long trail climbs 400 feet through pristine wilderness to the Puerco Canyon watershed divide and provides spectacular ocean and mountain views. It then descends onto an ancient marine terrace with native bunch grasses. Along this route, you will pass through coastal sage scrub, coastal bluff native grassland, and the riparian corridor of Corral Creek with its alder, coast live oak, California sycamore, and willow trees.
We will meet at the church at 9:00 am on Saturday, January 28th, to carpool to the trailhead. We expect to arrive there at 9:30 am. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and bring a knapsack with water. A hat and sunscreen are recommended, along with a camera, cell phone, and snacks. Dogs on leashes are allowed.
