Point Mugu State Park is located in the Santa Monica Mountains, less than an hour's drive north of Los Angeles. Five miles of Pacific shoreline with rocky bluffs, sandy beaches and sand dunes provide some of the most gorgeous scenery anywhere. While Highway 101 meanders along the coast in many locations, you must leave it and drive West to Highway 1 in order to see Point Mugu. The designated Watchable Wildlife Site is a birder's delight.

What's there to do?  The beach features swimming, body surfing and surf  fishing. Mediterranean climate with warm days and cool evenings makes layered clothing your best option. There  are more than 70 miles of hiking trails with rugged hills and uplands, two major  river canyons and  grassy valleys dotted with sycamores and oaks.
