  • Warning and advice to visitors: some of the local NIMBY Karen/Ken types have taken it upon themselves to police Topanga State Park on their own, threatening "outsiders", AKA the public who pays taxes....  more »
  • This was a fantastic hike - especially in the clear, cool weather we had today - at the top of the trail and Eagle Rock, we could see all the way out to Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes...  more »
  • I work in this area so I had a chance to find all the beautiful spots to sight see. Great views of Malibu, SF Valley and Santa Monica and Venice areas.
  • Easy-moderate hike. After visiting the eagle rock and the cave, we took another trail on your way back (right side) which goes to the ranch and finally to the parking lot. Be careful when you want to see the cave. And finally, synthesize with the nature⚘.
