Meetup Location

Mishe Mokwa Trailhead Parking Lot

Yerba Buena Rd. Westlake Village, CA 91361

There is a fairly large dirt parking lot on both sides of the road but please try to carpool. We don’t want to take up all the spaces plus the last few miles of the road are very twisty.

More parking and restrooms available just a short distance down the road at the Sandstone Peak trail head.
