Part of Historic Reagan Ranch, Deer Leg Trail is a smooth, wide singletrack trail along a forested, north-facing hillside, connecting on both ends to the Yearling Trail. There is a picnic area at the intersection of the Malibu Lake Vista Trail, which continues up the hill to the south. Just past that intersection, Deer Leg Connector Trail branches to the north, providing another connection to Yearling Trail. Look for wildflowers along the trail in spring.
Deer Leg Trail can be accessed from the Reagan Ranch staging area via Yearling Trail. From the 101, exit at Kanan Rd in Agoura Hills. Travel south on Kanan Rd. Turn left on Cornell Way for 2.3 miles to Mullholland Hwy. Continue on Lake Vista Dr. The staging area will be on the left just after the intersection.
