Hike: Mishe Mokwa Trail to Sandstone Peak

Updated October 2018:  I brought this post over from DeliciousLA blog because it’s a great hike in the LA area with magnificent views.
A few weeks ago, my friend Monica came to visit us.  We wanted to take her somewhere special, so we took her hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains.  We’ve been meaning to do this trail for awhile but it is a little farther out than the trails we usually do (Solstice Canyon, Temescal Canyon – see prior posts in the “Hike” category for more info).  It was awesome!
The drive up the PCH (gorgeous ocean views) and through the winding mountain roads was spectacular in itself.  It was a 6 mile moderately strenuous hike that took us about 3 hours.  The views were absolutely breathtaking!  As an added perk, we stopped by Malibu Seafood (review to come) and Grom Gelato on the way home.  This is probably our favorite hike so far!
