La Jolla Canyon Trail and Waterfall
Point Magu State Park could be thought of as
having three sections or areas: Sycamore Canyon, Boney Mountain Wilderness and La Jolla Canyon.
This page shows only a small
sample of the trails Point Magu State Park has to offer and only one of the many trails in La Jolla Canyon. The
La Jolla Canyon Trail connects to the La Jolla Valley Loop Trail above the falls, a beautiful grassland (not shown).
This page describes our hike just above the falls and back. We hiked out the same way we came in.
The pictures are dated 2/28/10,
recent rains had occurred so the falls and the creek were flowing nicely on that date. During the dryer
season it’s usually reduced to a trickle.
La Jolla Canyon trails connect with the Sycamore Canyon trails, which are said to be a great spot
to view the migration of the Monarch Butterflies every fall.
