Great Outdoors: The Only Real Workout
I’ve joined a gym for the first time in my life. Even worse, I’m kind of addicted. But when the weekend comes calling with warm days and cloudless skies, there’s only one place you’ll find me breaking a sweat…and that’s on a hike.
The easy breezy trails of Malibu that I once enjoyed so much just don’t cut it anymore. I need mileage. So we set our sights on Sycamore Canyon, an 11-mile loop in the mountains and grassland between Thousand Oaks and Malibu.
This spot offers a little bit of everything, with some people geared up for the long haul, and others choosing a shorter walk to a very rewarding waterfall.
Wildlife was everywhere here, though we had the unfortunate luck of spotting the remains of a chicken, headless and very out of it’s native environs.
