Thousand Oaks, California: Wealthy City near the Santa Monica Mountains
The rugged Santa Monica Mountains separate the Pacific coast from the affluent city of Thousand Oaks, located about 15 miles inland. From Thousand Oaks, it’s just a quick jaunt into the scenic hills. A 6-mile round-trip hike on the Mishe Mokwa Trail leads up to Sandstone Peak. Along the way, hikers pass Echo Cliffs—a popular rock-climbing spot—and plenty of boulders, sandstone formations, and sheer cliff walls. Malibu’s legendary beaches, including Malibu Surfrider Beach, home of the Malibu Pier, are about 20 miles from Thousand Oaks.
