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

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

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 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!

Start earlier in the day. It’s a very steep grade and not shaded so it gets hot quick even if your close to the ocean but beautiful view is the Pacific Ocean

I wouldn’t say it’s moderate, a lot harder than I expected. Trail only goes uphill

Ahh, I love this trail! The beginning is pretty tough(for me), but once you get past all the steep hills, it’s such a beautiful hike! Feels amazing when you make it to the top!

Great hike with a beautiful view! Our family loved it. I’ve got 3 kids (the youngest age 10) and the trip took us 2 hours and 45 minutes round trip. Enjoy!

Definitely harder than I expected a “moderately” rated trail to be. Quite steep.

This hike is great and if you looking to get a great calf workout, this is the place. I came here with a group of friends and all of us loved it. The view at the top is worth
the heavy breathing and sweat.
