Route Directions 

A very challenging section of the Backbone Trail paralleling the Malibu coastline that undulates between Corral and Encinal canyons. Prepare for some very busy riding as the trail is always descending or climbing. Extremely tight hairpins, technical rocky singletrack and smooth highspeed sections through forests will have both the novice and expert grinning alike. Trailhead Location: End of Corral Canyon Road in Malibu, 90265 (3.25 miles inland from the Pacific Coast Highway)

Great ride yesterday after Xmas.
1 year since last time I was here. And another scorching day at that. Still love this trail. Looser and chunkier than I can ever remember. Makes for great technical skills practice trying to clean everything.
Rode Sunday morning ride start: 75 degrees ride end: 100+ degrees
First time here with new bike. Cleaned almost 100% of everything in both directions.
Epic day for an epic route
