Unnamed Road - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Skunk Point Loop Trail is a 6.1 mile hike in Channel Islands National Park on Santa Rosa Island. This trail offers scenic ocean views and an unbeatable opportunity to see marine wildlife.

This is a guided hike in Channel Islands National Park that provides a shuttle to the trailhead. If you are hiking this without a guide, add about 2-3 miles to your round trip. Check with park volunteer about their guided hikes when you get to Santa Rosa Island. During Snowy Plover nesting season closure you can only hike on the wet sand around skunk point, not above it in the dune.
