As Niki said below. Full loop is overgrown, so we had to turn around, but awesome views as always to the top of Mugu Peak. Trail is open. Parking lot is not, so park on side of PCH. Enjoy!

Completed just before COVID. Great day hike with a very steep climb to the top. Beautiful views of the ocean and the hills. Because it's so steep, going back down can seem a little hairy but just watch your footing. It was pretty busy when I went on a Saturday.

Loop is completely overgrown, but can still make it to Mugu peak. Don’t expect to make the full loop due to overgrowth. Parked across the street due to COVID.

Difficult hike for beginners. Very steep going up with a couple of flat surface. Once you finish the steep part, there’s 2 ways getting to the flag. Long easy way (flat) or short hard way (steep). It’s worth it once you make it up there

the first mile was definitely tough since it was all incline. you can go to the right on the trail after the first half mile and it'll be easier. other than that this is probably the most beautiful hike I've been on. I hope to be back soon

Great trail with great views. Def check the weather—Some of the steep parts would be super slippery in rain. It’s strenuous at times, but you’ll see a couple little ones in crocs doing fine, so no worries

If you’re looking to do a lot of elevation in a relatively short distance, this a good trail to do. I recommend going left at the fork on the way up. This will take you up the steep way and down the long way. Great views on this trail! A little bit crowded though.

Views were insane but def not easy. If you go to the left you only go up hike about 1 mile but it’s steep. If you go right you go up hill about 2 but less steep
