Scenic Drives – Malibu Canyon Road

Malibu Canyon Road, County Route N1, is a scenic two-lane connector that runs from US 101 near Calabassas to SR-1 in Malibu. From US 101 to Piuma Road, it is called Las Virgenes Road. South of that point to SR-1, it is Malibu Canyon Road. It is the southern section in particular that is the most scenic. It runs through a deep canyon with steep cliffs on both sides. Large sandstone outcrops can be seen on both sides with waterfalls in wetter years.
