Welcome to the Newcomers Ice Cream Beach Hike at Zuma in Malibu. What is better than combining two of summer's favorite activities together, than the beach and ice cream. And not just ice cream, but a full on sudae bar - YMMMMMMM!!!! Best of all, the ice cream is free! All you need to do is get here. So do we need a reason to celebrate? C'mon, it's summer and the ICE CREAM is FREE!!! Plus, you can stick around and enjoy the sunset at 8PM . That's reason enough.
Come check out the low tide at the tidal pools of Zuma. You might see clams, starfish, and sea anemones hidden along the exposed rocks. This beginners beach hike of 4 miles and 400 ft gain provides great scenic views of the islands and, if we are lucky, migrating whales. We will be going from Zuma Point Dume to Paradise Cove and back. The scenery is beautiful and it is one reason why many weddings are held here. Bring a camera if you like, 2 quarts water, money, sunscreen, and lunch/snack. The rocks may be slippery and there is a chance your feet can get wet so wear something appropriate.
We will be meeting at the corner of Stuart Ranch Road and Civic Center Way at 1:45PM. Please meet us near the bus stop here. There is a Malibu Arts Festival happening here so parking may be a little difficult. If you can not find parking at 23555 Civic Center Way Malibu, CA 90265 then I suggest parking 2 blocks away (around the corner) at Malibu City Hall at 23815 Stuart Ranch Road, Malibu, CA.
Another carpool location located in Woodland Hills for thos coming from the valley will be set up. Please meet at 1:30PM at Taft High School on 5461 Winnetka Avenue CA 91364-2592. Just pull into the parking lot near the corner of Winnetka Ave and Ventura BLVD.
For those coming late or just want to meet us at the trailhead, please meet us at 2:20PM at Zuma Point Dume. Take PCH North past Kanan Dume Rd. Look for Zuma Beach signs and make a left on Westward Beach Rd. Follow the road as it curves along the sandy beach to Bird View Ave where a restaurant will be to your left. Parking is free up to this point if you find a spot. However, the trailhead is straight through the stop sign and pay parking booth at the very end of the road. When you pay or walk to the end, you should see a cliff jutting out to the waves and a trail leading up the cliff. This is where we meet.
