The trailhead is at the intersection of Bienveneda and Via Floresta in Pacific Palisades. The single track Leacock Trail soon meets the Bienveneda Trail which then takes us to the Temescal Ridge Trail. We turn right on the Backbone Trail and intersect the Rogers Road, and then descend on the obscure Bay Tree Trail to the Rustic Canyon (the turnaround point). On the return, we bypass the Bienveneda intersection and proceed another .6 miles to the intersection with the Leacock Trail, where we turn right and gently descend to our cars.
