  • This is a great place to hike. The Will Rogers house was closed when we visited, but we toured it several years ago and I highly recommend doing so.  more »
  • Great place to hike and the hike is easy for beginners. Wide and open, it has bathrooms at the beginning of the road. Perfect for children, pets are allowed. Lookout with incredible views! nice place....  more »
  • Wow! This tour was such a delightful surprise. I didn't know more than the real basics about Will Rogers, so it was really nice to understand why he was lauded as an important figure, as much as he was. Definitely take the time to go on the docent-lead tour of the house. Our Translator (tour guide), Calista, was phenomenal...a wealth of information, with an upbeat demeanor of a person who LOVES what they do. I also really appreciated the masterful way she dealt with the one obnoxious "know-it-all" in the group, who kept trying to challenge her knowledge. She was super professional, kind, respectful, and confident in herself. Shut the "bro" dude down without humiliating him - seriously impressive!
  • Amazing short little hike with a great view, or you can keep going for a longer hike too. The first portions are puppy friendly, so a great place to bring your four legged friends. Lots of squirrels, lots of lizards, we even saw some bunnies. Good place to get up out of the smog.
