Malibu Springs Trail is a great option for a loop with other trails in the Nicholas Flat Network. Much of the trail is lined with sage and other low chaparral allowing excellent views of the surrounding parklands. Bright wildflowers thrive in the sunny, exposed conditions and bloom along the trail in the spring. There is a climb up from Decker School Rd. The trail may also be accessed from Mulholland Hwy, via Malibu Springs South Trail, but this also requires climbing.
The trail can be accessed from Decker School Rd. From the PCH, head east on CA-23N/Decker Rd. After 2.4 miles, make a slight left onto Decker School Rd. Continue on road around a series of turns until reaching trailhead on right. There is limited street parking available.
