“Rent a mt. bike from Topanga Creek Bicycles.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

The backbone trail is about 60 miles in all. It can new traversed from Will Rogers park in Santa Monica to Point Mugu in Malibu.
Rent a mt.bike from Topanga Creek bicycles and have a blast. It's a great way to see the trail.
