This trail connects Crags Road, the main trail across the park, to the southern end of the Yearling Trail. From the Yearling Trail, you slowly climb out of the grasslands up to the ridge above Malibu Creek. The eastern half of the Lookout Trail has some of the best views of Malibu Creek State Park before it comes down to connect with Crags Road.
Lookout Trail can be accessed from the Reagan Ranch staging area in Malibu Creek State Park via Yearling Trail. From the 101, exit at Kanan Road in Agoura Hills. Travel south on Kanan Road to Cornell Way and turn left. Continue for 2.3 miles to Mullholland Highway. Continue straight onto Lake Vista Drive. The staging area will be on the left just after the intersection.
