This is a great state park right off Malibu Canyon and Mulholland in Calabasas...plenty of great hiking and mountain biking. Historic M.A.S.H. television set is still partially there with some restored items. Rock pool is beautiful area to hike to and see the rock climbers and swim in...be careful jumping off the rocks (very dangerous). Century lake is another pretty... More

I spent a few hours hiking in the canyon today, moving from dry conditions to lush, back to dry again, and from open areas to shade to open areas. Some of the creeks were dried right out and others were still glowing. All of these changing conditions kept my interest, even when following the same trail back. I went up... More

My husband and I have been trying new hikes each weekend. We visited MASH place this weekend. The flowers are blooming and it is so pretty. Tons of butterflies and birds chirping away. It was so relaxing and pretty. You can wear tennis shoes and shorts, as much of the trail is wide and well paved. There are two small... More

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
