The following pictures are from the Malibu Creek State Park, using various film and digitsl cameras. Most of the pictures are from a hike originated out of the main parking lot. It is mostly a roundtrip hike along Crags Rd which is a 4.8 mile roundtrip. Quick side trips along Forest Trail (0.6 mile RT) and Lost cabin Trail (1.4 mile RT) are included. None of the trails are that difficult. One picture is from the Tapia Park section, south of the main park area. Although there is not much to see at the old MASH TV set found on this hike, the hike itself shown here is well worth the time spent.
