Love this beach

Great place for hiking......the trail going to the mountain is rather steep, but the views from there make it well worth it! Be aware, this beach can get crowded as well.

Great hike for a morning or afternoon. There is a pretty steep trail going up the mountain. Once you are up there you get rewarded with stunning scenery and landscape. Make sure you hike the plateau as well (Valley loop trail). We had it all to ourselves. You get to experience nature at its best. The smell of the wildflowers... More

Good views for a back to nature person. If the ocean and sand is your thing, you will like this place. It can get very crowded.

One of our best stops on the side of Pacific Coast Highway was the Point Mugu rocks. There weren't many places to park here, but it was free. We didn't go into the state park because of the $12 parking fee since we didn't have a lot of time to spend there. We just stopped long enough to take pictures... More

Lots of hiking trails, hills, flowers in spring, occasional ponds, growing back well after the fires 2 years ago, go the top of Mt Mugu and sign the register!

We hiked the scenic and overlook trail starting at the campground. The views of the mountains and the ocean are amazing. The hike takes a couple hours and is around 3 miles in total.

I have been going to this beach since the mid 60s and it is still one of my favorites. Great views. Worth every penny. The drive up PCH is amazing so it a win win outing

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
