Trail Description
About this trail
This is moderate terrain, not too technical. There are many other variations you can take. Not uncommon to run into deer, bobcat, coyote, and rattle snakes. I've ridden this park (Pt. Mugu State Park) for over 20 years and I'm still not bored!

Review: This is my go-to trail. Mix of fire roads and singletrack. My usual loop is to climb Overlook fire road, decend Guadalasca trail, climb Wood Canyon fire road, decend Art's/Sin Nombre/Two Foxes, then ride the main fire road back down to highway 1.

Review: Once you get in to the canyon beyond the fire road there are a few great single track climbs and descents.... Guadalasca and Backbone are the primary trails.

Review: Descended Black Bitch to hit Sin Nombre and Two Foxes singletracks then up Overlook to Sage singletrack. Sin Nombre and Two Foxes are fun fast flowy tracks with a little sand and some loose sections. There's a few places you can really open up and some good dips and a few bumps to be found. Trail widths on the singletracks are typically around 1 foot to 2 feet wide with a few 6 inch rocks but nothing really serious. Sage is a crazy fast, narrow singletrack next to a steep drop off on the right, don't screw up on this one.

Review: The Two Fox Trail is a little washed out. Guadalasca is awesome and Backbone is bumpy as always. On the way out we found out that the park will be closed for two months. Due to the rain.

Review: The reviewers claiming that all the trails are fire road must not know this place very well. There are ST alternatives to pretty much all the roads including Guadalasca Trail and a section of Backbone Trail that is one of the funnest DHs in Southern California. This is a great place to ride where you can go from the coastal foothills all the way to the beach. Great stuff.

Review: This is a cool beginner trail. It is all mainly fire road. From the parking area it is all dirt until you enter the entrance of the sycamore trail, which is all pavement and down hill. Once you get to the flatter surface road there will be a fox trail to your right. It is a cool little single track with a couple blind turns. I have attached some photos so you have an idea what to look for so you can enter that single track. It is all mainly fire road.

Review: This trail is fun to ride. There is nothing too technical here. Its pretty much all fire road. I like to start from the dirt parking area on the side of Potero road and end up at the camp site at on the beach at the end of the trail. This trail may also be made into a loop by taking Sycamore cyn and turn on Wood cyn. Wood cyn will come to a fork and both ways will lead you to the same place. If you decide to go left and take HELL HILL (some steap climbing here) you will end up at Overlook trail make a left. If you take the fork right then you will hit the Guadalasca trail. take the Guadalasca trail to Overlook trail and make a left. Follow Overlook trail down to the campground at the bottom. Take Big Sycamore cyn trail all the way up and back to your car. It is about 13 miles total. There is fresh water at the campground

Review: I ride this trail every Sunday. It has a good variety of beginner & intermediate technicalities. If you're seeking a long ride, with a moderate to intense aerobic workout, this is the place for you. All trails intersect with one-another, so it's fairly challenging to get lost. On the downside, there are a lot of hikers to run over. Be careful flying down these hills Tip: Go early to beat the crowd & the hikers.
