Point Mugu State Park, located 15 miles south of Oxnard on Highway One in the Santa Monica Mountains, features five miles of ocean shoreline, with rocky bluffs, sandy beaches, sand dunes, rugged hills and uplands, two major river canyons and wide grassy valleys dotted with sycamores, oaks and a few native walnuts. There are more than 70 miles of hiking trails. The beach also features swimming, body surfing and surf fishing. The park includes the jagged pinnacles of the Boney Mountains State Wilderness Area. The Day Use Annual Pass is accepted at this park.

One word- MOSQUITOS.
Of the large and biting variety. I am sure the hike would have been much more pleasant had we not been feasted upon heavily for 10 miles.
Bug Spray it up.

Nice trail. A little hot when there is very little water to cool down in. the cave was worth it to see though.

Good incline and awesome views of Pch

I did this hike at 5PM on a Thursday 2017.08.03 and finished at 7PM.

Lots of uphill and a good amount of traffic. Parking is horrible. No shade.
I went clockwise on the trail and that means all uphill until the peak. I like challenges so I didn't mind. I drank about 0.5L of water only. You will find a lot of people, families, etc on this trail. Also, people hike this at sundown to catch the sun:) Overall, decent with alright views. Don't expect a lot.

Pros: Challenging, Flag at the top, some good hill views
Cons: boring, hot, no shade, parking

An adventurous hike after driving the curvy winding roads. Very beautiful

Very boring. Just a flat dirt road, nothing to see. Mainly made for mountain bikers.

nice hike! love the beach views all the way. recommendations: long pants due to overgrowth and bug spray for all the mosquitos that are in the parking area.
