Backbone Trail: 67 Miles and 40 Years in the Making

Posted on June 13, 2016 by Conejo Valley

Celebrating its grand opening this month, the Backbone Trail debuts to the community after 40 years in the making. The trail stretches from Pacific Palisades to Malibu along ridges, chaparral-covered hillsides and oak woodlands while crossing creeks and valleys in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. It is open to hikers, mountain-bikers and horseback riders.


The Backbone Trail has been a decades-long journey to preserve, protect and connect the parklands of this mountainous area while providing recreational access to everyone seeking connection with nature.


It’s because of the efforts of a dedicated community, elected officials, park agencies, volunteers and philanthropists that Backbone Trail has been completed for all to enjoy.
