Simply put, this trip gives you the best bang for your buck in the Santa Monica Mountains. The Pt. Mugu area is the most remote, least traveled, and closest thing to wilderness in the range. With so many trails in the area, this loop hike is only one of several options. In spring after a wet winter, this is one of the most beautiful areas in Southern California. And it’s all within an hour’s drive of Los Angeles!
