For the hike, we'll be following the Chumash Trail to Mugu Peak for spectacular views of the coast, rolling meadows, and mountains.

We'll start the hike around 10 am, and return around 1 pm. Then we'll head to Mugu State Park beach to eat lunch and relax.


Things to bring: hiking appropriate clothes and shoes (long pants encouraged), water, sunscreen, hat, lunch, money to split gas/parking (reimbursement possible). Snacks, drinks, bathing suit, volleyball, frisbee, etc. for the beach very much encouraged! 

We'll be arranging carpools from UCLA. Let us know if you need a ride! Carpooling is encouraged, since we expect the beach to be busy due to Memorial Day weekend. In addition, let us know if you can drive and provide rides. Please feel free to just join us at the beach if you cannot make the hike, or vice versa.

So take a load off before the end of the year and join BGS for fun in the sun! RSVP by Thursday, 5/21 to and let us know if you have any questions.
