Springtime normally brings many wildflowers. Over half of the hike is in Mugu State Park. DIRECTIONS: From Los Angeles, take Highway 101 W to Thousand Oaks. Exit at Wendy Drive. Go south on Wendy until it dead ends at the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. There is ample parking at the trailhead.
