This place is great for the weekend camper or if you just want to come and spend the day. Its very peaceful and relaxing. I like coming during the week where sometimes there are barely any campers . Feels like i'm in a different world sometimes.

What a beautiful walk up to the visitor's center where you can see the stories o the many movies shot here in the past, then continue on to the small lake that was enjoyed for hundreds of years by local Chumash indians.

Fabulous, easy hike with surprising beauty. As a MASH fan this has been a bucket list wish for a while. Hike about 4 miles round trip into the former film set of the show through lovely trees, around delicate flowers and be impressed with the iconic views you've seen on tv. Stand on the helipad or right at The Swamp... More

My sisters and little nieces ended up in Malibu and since it was such a nice day, we stopped for an hour hike. The trails are nice and wide and clearly marked for easy walking. Very family friendly and you can also take your mountain bike on other trails nearby. We walked through rolling hills and to a prairie with... More

I went to visit my son in California and had a great time visiting the Malibu Beach, it was a while back, but I think the parking was very easy, it was a bit chilly though.

Good for biking, hiking or just a drive. Scenery views, better to stop by on the way back from Malibu to Calabasas

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
