Very easy hike with access to restrooms and water along the way. Mostly fire roads up until you get to the top of the trail with some single track. Great views of the ocean and wild parrots!

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.

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.

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...More
