Beautiful park and a great hike. Pay $12 for parking or park for free on the road outside the Park and walk in. Five miles to the MASH site and takes about 2 hours. A few slight hills, but nothing terrible. Most of the path is wide enough for Park Ranger vehicles. The last mile to the MASH site is... More

Well marked, easily accessable trails, mostly level with one point having about a hundred foot gain. Site for some of the exteriors of many movies back in the 70's and 80's.

What a Great park and nice views u can have here. Watch the old M A S H with historic rescue cars and enjoy the little lake. You can also hike up to the bulldog and enjoy the great view over the entire area Down to Santa Monica.

Beautiful park with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. Even beginners will enjoy the hike. The best part was hiking to the site where M.A.S.H was filmed. Follow well marked signs. It's about a 5 mile hike round trip but so worth it. Also don't pay $12 to park. Parking is available for free along the... More

In wet season a stream and lake that look beautiful, beautiful vistas and reasonable effort for most trails...family friendly and feels safe, but carry water, snacks, sunblock and follow the designated trails...

A great hike for M.A.S.H. fans, but also just a nice hike. A combination of level, rugged, up hill, down hill, wide trail, narrow trail, with beautiful views and vistas. We did a 5 mile round trip from the parking lot. It had rained heavily last weekend and was starting to green up after a long dry period. Go for... More

We took a 3 hour hike through the park today and it was a great time. It was a beautiful day so the sky, rocks and trees were incredible. The birds were out which made it even more interesting. Our docent guide was Dean and he is an expert on the history of the area. It was an easy hike... More

Great place to hike -- lots of side trails, ponds, streams running through, and wildlife -- we saw deer, quail and hawks.

My husband is a big time MASH fan. We took the beautiful 2.5 mile hike back the site of the outdoor MASH set. Make sure you watch the opening scenes of a MASH show before you go. You will recognize the scenery when you get there. My husband thought this was AWESOME!!!!!
