From Cold Canyon Road, the trail parallels the road to the south and then heads west up a low ridge, just north of the Monte Nido neighborhood. The first part of the trail follows a narrow route through riparian forest, then breaks into chaparral when heading back up the ridge. The trail ends at a private property boundary.
From the 101, head south on Las Virgenes Road and travel 3 mi. to Mulholland Highway. Go left (east) on Mulholland, travel 3.1 mi. to Cold Canyon Road. Turn left, travel 0.6 mi. to trail entrance point on right (west) side of road.
