Former Boy Scout Camp Circle X Ranch is hidden away in the canyons above Malibu, below Boney Mountain. The area offers several hikes, including one to Sandstone Peak, the highest point in the Santa Monica Mountains. Another popular spot is the Grotto - a reasonable hike for kids, with a creek for added enticement.
Dogs are allowed on leash, and horses are allowed on trails.
A group camp site is available for reservation.
