The $12 entrance fee is more expensive than I thought considering the size of this beach. It is relatively remote so not as crowded as other popular beaches. Good place for group barbecue with enough parking spaces. You can also play volleyball or soccer on the beach, but make sure to remove all the stones in your field before playing.

We came to the Sycamore Pk (Pt Mugu State Pk) on 28 July intending to hike. At the entrance we were met by a laconic, bored ranger. We asked if their was a map of the trails "No", are the trails very arduous "I don't know". How long are the loops? Is ther a 1- hour loop? " I don't... More

Took the La Juanita loop trail. It is gorgeous and we'll worth the $8 parking fee. Bring your camera and water bottle. I want to go back soon

We stay at the Thornehill broome campsite every year. It's great, campsites are large and open. You have a full view of the ocean and all its wildlife. This trip we have seen humpback whales, dolphins, sea lions and pelicans. Great place to stay for the money. Arrive early for a good spot.

If your driving up the PCH this is a wonderful spot to stop to stretch your legs and take some photos. That's all the time we had, but I'd love to come back to enjoy the hiking and beach.

There's good /reasonable restroom in the area. If you like to camp there's also a place. There's daily fee to pArk 12usd for... More

We love coming to Point Mugu for mountain biking usually at least a couple times per visit with some other Malibu friends. It's very primitive, not a ton of parking or facilities, just nature. Good views of the Naval Air Station, too. Nice dunes and rocks to see and climb on.

I hiked to Mugu peak several times (Chumash trail?). Also hiking La Jolla Canyon and Ray Miller to the overlook trail. Typically you have a steep climb up until you get to a plain which is mostly just grass lands but the climb in has interesting rock formations, and interesting plant life. The recent fire however turned everything black on... More

If you're looking for some challenging trails for hiking or mountain biking, they're here. If you're looking for moderate trails to help you improve your skills, they're here.
