The trail offers a spur off the loop trail at Peter Strauss Ranch. Heads-up: Public access does not yet extend to Malibou Lake. However, the rustic trail passes through oak woodland on a boulder-strewn, north-facing slope. The trail is a beautiful footpath, scented by bay laurel trees and offering a well-shaded hike.
Trail is accessible from the Peter Strauss Ranch staging area at 30000 Mulholland Highway. From Highway 101, exit at Kanan Rd. and head south 3 mi. Turn left onto Troutdale. Turn left onto Mulholland, travel approx. 300 feet and turn right into the Peter Strauss Ranch parking lot. Walk back over the bridge, enter Peter Strauss Ranch, and take the Peter Strauss Loop Trail east to the junction with the Malibou Lake Connector Trail.
