Description

Puerco Canyon is a 3.3-mile moderately trafficked fire road that leads from the PCH to Mesa Peak Motorway near the crest of the mountain range. The trail is typically done as a moderately-strenuous out-and-back. From the top, Mesa Peak Motorway provides access to Mesa Peak, Corral Canyon Caves, and Malibu Creek State Park.
