Hiking Backbone Trail {local trails}

Happy Work-it-Wednesday! Natasha is here to share one of her favorite local trails and ways to keep in shape, hiking Backbone.

Is it just us, or are you stoked on 80 degrees in February? After Valentine’s Day and a little too much indulging, I was craving a complete body overhaul; physically and mentally.

As you may have noticed by now, hiking and biking are two of my favorite ways to get in shape and clear my head. It is the best way, in my opinion, to take an hour (or more, if you have the time) and truly unplug from it all.

Backbone Trail - LocalLove805Today I am featuring an awesome trail tucked away in the hills of Malibu. Located just off Kanan Road, Backbone Trail is the perfect day-cation for hiking, biking and/or simply exploring. The entirety of the trail spans over 67 miles, making it one of the longest trails in the Santa Monica Mountains (caveat: we have not hiked the whole thing, but maybe one day!?). The trail is completely open to hikers and portions of it are open to mountain bikers, horseback riders and dogs.

With the recent rainfall we’ve experienced over the last two months, the trails have really opened up with flourishing green paths and low streams of trickling water. It is so beautiful!

You can also enjoy panoramic ocean views for portions of the hike, and then on the end, you’re tucked away in the mountains, leaving the feeling of any nearby city or town far away.Backbone Trail - LocalLove805

So whether you’re taking the Backbone Trail to the beach or maybe to the high elevations like the point of Sandstone Peak — this is a trail you will thoroughly enjoy!
