The general layout of Malibu's roads is qutie simple -- PCH runs east-west along the coast and only a few north-south roads cross the mountains to connect Malibu to the rest of the Los Angeles area. It is more complex if you consider all the small side roads that join PCH to the mountain and canyon communities that dot the land from the beach to the ridge tops surrounding the Malibu coastal strip.

In addition to the hard surface roads for cars and trucks, the Malibu area is replete with hiking trails. In addition to wonderful walks along the beach, there are many opportunites for hiking at all levels of distance and difficulty.
