I live on the Newbury Park side of this hike. I used to do this hike every week but not so much anymore (not in good enough condition to do it) but it is beautiful. Plenty of... read more

I live on the Newbury Park side of this hike. I used to do this hike every week but not so much anymore (not in good enough condition to do it) but it is beautiful. Plenty of wildlife if you leave early enough; deer, coyotes, bobcats, and even every once in a while a cougar. If it ever rains here... More

Eight miles of no traffic for hikers and bikers between Newbury Park and the Pacific shore. Some paved, a lot of dirt road. Over the years I've seen coyotes, Bobcats,deer, rabbits, and one mountain lion. Shaded by sycamores (no surprise) and oaks most of the way. Easiest access from Sycamore campground on PCH.

8 mile hike one-way. Lots of bikes on the trail but it is wide and much of it is paved. Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa State Park at the top, Sycamore Cove on the Pacific Coast Highway at the end. Pay parking at Sycamore Cove.

Nestled into the Santa Monica Mountains there is a trail running from Newbury Park down to the Ocean. A great hike or bike one way or both always a pleasure. There are many alternative side trails to consider as well if not inclined or ambitious enough for the approximate 7 mile one way trip. In 2013 when walking on one... More

My daughter(32 years old) and I often hike in Sycamore canyon. It is always fun to hike in the outdoors and experience Mother Nature.

Soo many trails to choose from in Sycamore Canyon. You can take short hikes or long hikes, it just depends on your time and skill level. Any trail offers a great view and workout...

Getting started with the bike took some time, so we would leave one vehicle in Malibu and drive to the other side canyon. One- way down hill is the best way to kick start the new habit.

I have walked this beautiful canyon trek several times in 2016. It is a wonderful place to get in an easy hike but still a good workout. I have had my wife pick me up at the beach. It takes about three hours from the Newbury Park trailhead to the beach. There are green parrots everywhere. My plan next time... More

This wonderful hike (at least if you do it when its not blazing hot and only go one-way from Newbury Park to the beach) was surprisingly straightforward. Really no climbing at all. A long distance with minimal shade but ya gotta love the portapotties at several strategic points as well as water pumps. Worth it to end up at the... More

Bike, hike and /or horse back to the beach from the trail head on Lynn Road. I like to have someone meet us at the Sycamore camp grounds or beach for the trip back to Newbury Park/Thousand Oaks,CA
