Overview

Features: -none-
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This is an easy fire road climb on gentle grades that meanders through lush riparian woodlands. The route connects to trails in Point Mugu State Park as well as other trails in the Santa Monica Mountains.

In winter, there is a potential for stream crossings, but these are mostly dry in the late spring and summer months.

fun climb with nice views, only wish there was a way to take advantage of the elevation by descending on singletrack.

This was a great introductory ride with my 11y daughter. Easy downhill ride, fun for the little ones. 10mi

Wildflowers in bloom everywhere with splashes of poppies on the hillsides. The road was clear and easy from Satwiwa to Sycamore Canyon Campground. 15.8mi — 1h 22m

It's really too bad we're forced to ride this instead of the amazing trail just off the side that is no bikes. Upper Sycamore trail would really complete this entire area and allow us to avoid the pavement. May 28, 2017
