When you’re looking for a challenging and beautiful hike or bike, Backbone Trail is the perfect course. Backbone Trail is 62 miles in its entirety, but it splits off in several trails to cater to any skill level and terrain preference.
The Backbone Trail stretches from Will Rogers State Historic Park to Point Mugu State Park, and touches Malibu Creek State Park in the middle. If you’re looking to get through as much of the trail as possible, then a mountain bike is preferable, or you can camp in the area to continue your hike over several days. The terrain varies from mesas, peaks, plateaus and grass lands allowing for wildlife viewing, scenic views and huge elevation drops and climbs.
Pack your buddies, your bikes and your gear into a 2013 GL350 BlueTEC SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino to make the trip to Backbone Trail. The roomy interior and top of the line amenities will make the drive to and from the mountains a pleasant and comfortable one. The style and class of a Mercedes-Benz SUV couples good looks with expert performance and handling, making tackling any terrain a cinch.
