A perfect alternative to the overly crowded Runyon Canyon Park, Tuna Canyon boasts incredible views throughout and a stunning spiral rock labyrinth at the top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Organic Premium Espresso Blend
Unique just like the embers that thrive in a blazing campfire. The Campfire Espresso delivers a complex, yet balanced aroma ideal for early morning coffee at home or in the mountains. It’s our most adaptable roast, which is able to be enjoyed as an espresso or through other brewing methods such as pour over.
Tasting notes include dark chocolate, cherry citrus, and citrus caramel.
About this Coffee
- If you're heading to the hike from Los Angeles, take the Pacific Coast Highway North towards Ventura. You'll pass the Getty Villa and the stop light for Big Rock Road will be approximately 2.4 miles up the Pacific Coast Highway. Take a right at Big Rock Road and continue driving uphill through the neighborhood until you reach the white road gate at the entrance of Tuna Canyon Park.
- NOTE: Be courteous when parking in the neighborhood and be mindful not to block any driveways. There were plenty of parking options at the time this hike was completed and parking on the shoulder of the road would be ideal.
- After parking your car, you'll want to enter Tuna Canyon park through the white road gate and follow the service road (Big Rock Drive) uphill.
- Directly after crossing over the road gate, a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean will be on your left. On a clear day, you'll be able to see for miles looking north along the beautiful Malibu shoreline.
- Continue heading up the fire road, the path will quickly steepen upward giving your leg muscles a nice burn. If you're looking to truly give your legs a great workout, consider doing lunges as you ascend the slightly inclined hill.
- You'll eventually come to a fenced off water facility at the end of the paved road. A dirt path on your left will be the route you'll want to follow.
- Shortly after you veered away from the fenced off water facility, another split will occur with Big Rock Lateral. Follow the path to the right (Big Rock Drive turns into Big Rock Mountain Way) and a short distance further the trail will level out giving your leg muscles a quick breather.
- You'll eventually hit another split with Budwood Mountain Way and you'll want to stay on Big Rock Mountain Way by taking the path to the left.
- A short distance ahead will bring you to another split with Big Rock Mountain Way and Hearst Tank Mountain Way. Here, you'll want to continue straight ahead on Hearst Tank Mountain Way as Big Rock Mountain Way will lead you to towards a neighbor road.
- As you head up the hill, the spiral rock formation (or labyrinth) will greet you along with a breathtaking view of Santa Monica, the Pacific Ocean and even the San Gabriel Mountains off in the distance.
- Relax here taking in the view and return the same way you came up.
