The absolute SoCal rider’s playground. From the heights of the mountains to the Pacific and back (Repeat)
The Santa Monica Mountains range extends approximately 40 miles (64 km) east-west from the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles to Point Mugu in Ventura County. The western mountains, separating the Conejo Valley from Malibu, suddenly end at Mugu Peak as the rugged, nearly impassible shoreline gives way to tidal lagoons and coastal sand dunes of the alluvial Oxnard Plain. The eastern mountains form a barrier between the San Fernando Valley and the Los Angeles Basin, separating “the Valley” on the north and west-central Los Angeles on the south.
The Santa Monica Mountains, which includes the Malibu Hills, are parallel to Santa Susana Mountains, which are located directly north of the mountains across the San Fernando Valley.
The southwestern branch of the headwaters of the Los Angeles River are in the Santa Monica Mountains. Beginning at the western end of the San Fernando Valley the river runs to the north of the mountains. After passing between the range and the Verdugo Mountains it flows south around Elysian Park defining the easternmost extent of the mountains.
