Moderately paced 8-9 mile hike with ocean views, open grasslands and wildflowers. We’ll observe how this gorgeous location in the Santa Monica Mts. has recovered from fire damage after it burned in May 2013. Meet 8 AM near the Ray Miller Trailhead kiosk (in parking lot). From Pacific Coast Hwy and Malibu Canyon Road go northwest on PCH about 20.8 mi. to La Jolla Valley / Pt. Mugu State Park Campground entrance (about 1½ miles northwest of Big Sycamore Canyon entrance). Bring 2 quarts water, lunch, sturdy hiking footwear, hat, sunscreen, windbeaker, $ for parking lot or park on PCH & walk in. Rain cancels.
