PCH overlook


You can hike over the great Malibu sand dune for one of the most amazing views of the pacific coast. The hike is not easy, it’s straight uphill most of the way but you get rewarded with this view. If you are in the Malibu area the scenic overlook trail loop is something you should try. The trail overlooks the ocean, you will not find another hike like this one.

The marine layer lingered offshore all day. Standing on the the edge of the overlook trail, looking out onto the largest ocean in the world makes me feel small.

When you turn around you get a great view of the Boney mountain formation. The sandstone peak is the highest point in the Santa Monica mountains.
