Definitely kicked my ass!

Beautiful, easy hike and fun to see the movie sets. However, a lot of horse poop along the trail.

Great trail to run and hike. I suggest to bring at least 1-2 water bottles per person. Great views on the ocean too. The sad thing is that no dogs are allowed on this fun hike. Did this hike in around an hour. There’s also a lot of lizards so be careful where you’re stepping especially when you’re doing a running hike. Also check the weather and wind for some clear days. It’s very kid friendly too. But be careful since the peak is a little steep and narrow. It’s a little overgrown too in the beginning. Parking has to be payed too.

Came back to see the Punch Bowls. We were unaware of a sign saying it was closed, but we were allowed in. Lots of groups and families were out on the trail. It was sad to see all the damages the Thomas Fire left on and in the surrounding areas of the Punch Bowls. Despite that the Punch Bowls was still there alive and beautiful as before. A lot of scrambling on the hike due to the fire. If you’re familiar with the trail then it shouldn’t be difficult to get to the falls. The green arrows on the rocks should lead you there. Otherwise, you can follow the creek.

Great Hike!

Love this trail, the only bad thing about is that is can get pretty crowded and no parking.

Done this trail a few times. It had water year round 2017. Nice technical trail once you get to the creek. Great half-day hike.

Snow capped mountains and crystal clear Pacific Ocean in the same breath! This is my new favorite hike in So Cal and I’ll be going back!

My favorite Malibu hike! Beautiful summit views, especially at sunrise. The final climb will make your legs burn, but the payoff is so worth it!

Love it

A view is beautiful and rewarding. Quiet early morning. Busy and noisy later during a day.

We arrived March 24, 2018 after several days of heavy rain. The security guard was turning people away as the trail was closed. No idea when they will reopen.

Lovely trail when I want a quick hike close to home. Great views from the top. If you go in the morning the trail is mostly shaded by the mountain itself. Watch out for bikers! They're common, and come down the trail pretty fast.

Favorite trail to take with kids. Just hard enough to keep them challenged without too much complaining, fun boulder scrambling opportunities. Bring a lunch and wear a bathing suit if it's been a wet year, kids love to splash around in the water.

This is a wonderful hike. It gets pretty steep so just be sure this is the right hike for you!

It was a clear day and the view from the top was incredible.

I couldn’t find anywhere about the condition of this hike after the fire. So I went and checked it out. Same easy access to it gate is open and no one stopped us from going in and also no posted “area closed” signs. For the most part the trail along the river bed was untouched by the fire, lots of mud and rock slides Have happened though and saw a few times rocks come tumbling down while we were up there. The water is dingy and cold so we didn’t go in. The trail up the hill away from the river was also slightly washed out by mud slides and lots of fire damage that way, cool sight to see plus right now there is new green growth coming through the black and ash. I recommend it. Wear boots.

I live in Ventura and have been doing arroyo with my son(4 years old) but in my mind it's more of a dog park attraction than it is prized for it's trails. have been running up some switchback in Ojai too but mugu is a great next level uphill run. perfect little pre work 3 mile dash that goes just fine with some morning weights at the gym after for that leftover fuel. great views, obviously busy on weekend, but probably just fine when those weekend warriors are back at work. enjoy.

Definitely a moderate, but hiking boots and poles aren’t required. I made it just fine in my normal running shoes I usually hike in. Views the entire way were incredible!

We did it! What a work out! The views are amazing!

Great views and decent workout, but nothing bad. Leave time for soaking in the views at the top!

Absolutely beautiful little trail. Driving to the trailhead itself offered gorgeous views of the mountains, canyons, and distant oceans.

The river beds were all dried up, but there is some flowing water when you get down to the grotto. The trail itself is pretty easy, but more towards the moderate side considering some of the loose rock on the somewhat steep inclines down into the canyon.

Although I was wearing long sleeves and pants, I did find a tick on my dog and one burrowing in my side when I got home, so please check yourselves if you do this hike.

Very sad to hear that this trail has been destroyed by the Thomas fire. This was one of the best hikes I've ever found. I hope that it will be restored within my lifetime so I can go hike this majestic trail again...

Great trail with amazing view most especially at the peak. Definitely one of my favorite trails.

Great hike and the views are incredible. Definitely check the wind conditions before you drive out here. The wind was very strong while we hiked, which was okay for us adults but would have been too strong for kids.
