View Trail Info

Malibu Creek State Park and the connecting trails have something for everyone. There are novice trails here, as well as one of the most demanding. The trails in the park proper are generally quite easy because they wind through the valleys and don’t have a lot of climbing, but neither are they dead flat and boring. Since they have mountains on at least one side at all times, the scenery is always more than pleasant and frequently spectactular. And from the park you can get to the Backbone Trail, the holy grail of trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. Connecting them is the imfamous Bulldog Motorway – you either love it or hate it – as it climbs 1750 feet from the valley floor to the Castro Motorway on Castro Ridge.

Sycamore Canyon Trail

Thousand Oaks / Newbury Park

Via Goleta, Newbury Park, CA 91320

Difficulty: Easy Distance: 0-2 Miles Distance: 0-500 Feet Elevation: 1-50
View Trail Info

There are some great trails around Thousand Oaks and the Conejo Valley, but many people consider Sycamore Canyon in Point Mugu State park to be the best, especially for novice and intermediate users. It has a great variety of single tracks and fire roads with a variety of degrees of difficulty, but none of them are really rocky, loose or rutted. It is secluded so you don’t see any development, and there are lots of trees to provide shade and beauty. It can get hot here in the summertime, especially on the trails that climb out of the cayon, but it’s still one of the least hot places to ride and hike. In the canyon there are trees and shade, but up on the higher trails there are great views.

Sycamore Canyon trails are very accessible. There is plenty of free parking at the top (north end) at the two trailheads, and ample paid parking in the campground at the bottom. For people who would like only a short and/or easy hike, the Sycamore Canyon Fireroad from the campground and the Satwiwa area at the north end provide lots of choices.

On the other hand, the trails of the Boney Mountain Wilderness are more suited for good hikers. The trails are longer, steeper and sometimes rocky or rutted, but more secluded, and with fantastic views of nearby valleys and distant peaks. All trails in the Wilderness Area, east of Sycamore Canyon Fireroad, are closed to bikes.

Pt Mugu State Park

La Jolla Canyon Trailhead

Difficulty: Moderate Distance: 5-10 Miles Distance: 7.3 1,000-1,500 Feet Elevation: 1325 1-50
View Trail Info

La Jolla Valley lies at the far west end of the Santa Monica Mountains, adjoining Sycamore Canyon in Point Mugu State Park. This is a very popular area for hikers. All trails are well used, well maintained and, with the exception of three trails noted below, have firm, fairly smooth treads and are at most moderately steep. During the springtime, long green grasses and wildflowers are everywhere.

It’s very pretty, but remember to check regularly for ticks. The southern trails have spectacular views of the coast, and, to the east, Serrano Valley and Boney Mountain beyond. The trails are closed to mountain bikes except for La Jolla Valley Fireroad. Conversely, the two main access trails are closed to horses, so the only equestrian access is by way of the same La Jolla Valley Fireroad from Sycamore Canyon.
