Really enjoyed this. Challenging, beautiful views & well-marked trails. Took my little chihuahua with me and had a blast. Not very packed on the day I went (monday afternoon). Go to the tippy top to see the statue. The rock can be challenging to scale but both my chihuahua and I did it just fine.

Great hike. Not too hard and gorgeous views. No shade so glad I did it before summer.

Pretty easy hike. First few miles are uphill. Great views, lots of wildflowers, beautiful!! Lots of mountain bikers...all friendly and courtesy sharing the trail.

Beautiful and fun

Nice beginner X-country type mountain bike trail. Nice climb up to about 1100ft or so, then you get to shred down Backbone. Fast and flowy.

I've hiked this route as well when I don't have time for anything else. If you're a beginner or only hike in the Santa Monicas, this would probably be considered "moderate". But if you frequent the San Gabes or San Bernardinos, this trail will be quite easy. Good place to get your feet wet with trail running as well!

Crowded, but scenic. Watch out for other bikers and hikers.

Fantastic trail. Gradual incline to the top. Very easy hike. Stunning views of the ocean throughout the entire hike. Ocean breeze and sounds and sight of the ocean all the way to the top of the mountain. This hike will not disappoint!!!

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!

Definitely go early if you could. Trails get busy later during a day. Valley loop part is usually nice quiet. Really pretty and satisfying trails.

Loop is closed. Assuming walk-in campground is part of closure too? I looked all over for it. Took Ray Miller 2.7 mile trail to the fire road. Never found LaJolla walk-in camp.

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

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

Steep climb, beautiful views

Great views, clean trail.

Great hike well kept

Fairly easy trail with great views.

It was a great short hike. took me about 2 hours ( with a long stop when I got to the top).

Easy. Not difficult.

Great hike. Long one. Awesome views.

This is an easy to moderate hike, not hard. The most difficult aspect is it’s length: 10 miles. It’s mostly fire road and approx 3 miles are flat.

Just gorgeous

Awesome training ascent with the best sunset views! Not as crowded as Chumash Trail!

Great hike with a nice cool breeze off the ocean.

Great hike, amazing views - totally exposed so wear a hat/UV gear and you'll be good.

Great hike. I didn't go all the way because I wanted to make it back to my car before my parking ticket expired. But great spots to over look the ocean.

Kiana is so right about the need for insect repellent and long pants. Lots of people on the narrow trail (hiked Saturday).
