Map and Site Information: Point Dume State Preserve
Point Dume State Preserve is home to many rocky coves, cliffs, and unique views of Malibu. On a clear day, Santa Monica Bay can be seen to the south, while Catalina Island is visible to the north. In the Summer months, locals can be found swimming, scuba diving and surfing. It's also a popular spot for whale watching between the months of December and March, when migrating whales take a shortcut near the bluffs while entering and exiting the bay.

Piece by piece, a trail is forging its way along the "backbone" of the recreation area. California State Parks took the first step toward a 65-mile Backbone Trail in 1978. With 5 miles left to go, single track trails and fireroads will unite this patchwork of public parklands from east to west.
