A fire road climb that provides access to Point Mugu and Newbury Park.

Overview

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.

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

Wildflowers are the most beautiful I have seen in over 20 years - poppies, lupine, mustard, mariposa lilies, gorgeous day.

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
