Course Description

This run starts and finishes near Tapia Park, parking at the intersection of Piuma with Las Virgenes rd (or Malibu Canyon rd.)

This loop is one of the longer runs AND one of the hardest. We start going through Tapia Park onto the Tapia Spur trail, then making our way into Malibu Creek State Park and past the site at which the TV series Mash was filmed. The run then goes up the infamous Bulldog rd -a very scenic trail that climbs forever- and returns to the start with panoramic views of the valleys and surrounding mountains.
