Ray Miller Trail in Malibu, California

I am in love with this trail. I have hiked this one twice and both times it’s been nothing short of amazing. It’s a 7 mile loop trail and easy to stick to the loop if you always stay to the right (assuming you are looping clockwise).

This was a sunset hike on a Tuesday with clear sky and pleasant breeze. The landscape here is burnt & charred with little vegetation. But thats what makes it even more breathtaking – the vast openness. I was blown away :)

The second half of the trail is when we saw the beautiful ocean with the sun setting. And there is more – You can hear the sound of the ocean waves… Told you, this hike is amazing at different levels.

Overestimated the brightness here :P

The foot traffic on this trail is minimum probably because its around 35 miles north of Santa Monica from PCH, way farther than other easily accessible trails.

  1. Awesome looking trail; think I may do this one next week. Do you use a GPS when you take these trails? Would love to grab your .gpx files when I, quite literally, follow in your footsteps.
