Great hike very scenic, for the first 1 mile the trail very mellow, the ascent to the top is challenging. During this mid November hike we encountered 3 mini snow storms. Views from the tower are spectatcular we could see the beach at Oxnard and the Channel Islands.

A pleasant little hike up from the campground at Thorn Meadows to the Thorn Point lookout. About four miles of constant up on generally good tread. I've bumped into bears and bobcats in the valley. The road in is seasonally closed and part of it is considered a 4WD route.
