We visited the park for a hiking tour. We took the "inspiration loop trail" it was really nice, good spots for great views and really quit - good to clear your mind. Picnic area is availed as well but we didn't use it. Parking cost 12$, entry is free.

I would give this park 5 stars except that it is hard to find (call ahead for directions if you are from out of town) and you will need exact change to park ($12.00). Don’t bother to go unless you take a tour. Call ahead to get days and times. Tours will take you inside the house and the docents... More

Lovely place for a walk. We parked a bit down the street as they charge a fee to park. If we were going to be there all day would have paid but we were only going for a wee walk. The trails were very easy to walk and not too steep and the view from the top was stunning. The... More

Love this beautiful park, and always come when I can. If an event is happening here, I always do my best to make plans work out. The Veuve Clicquot Classic was a fun, upscale event - great fun to dress up and wear a wide brimmed hat!! - where there was plenty of bubbly, yummy food, a great crowd of... More

Although we checked on the website before leaving home, the park access road was closed the Saturday we went. Event parking was further down the road at a high school and other neighborhoods. I assume it was a polo event since that occurs on Saturdays, but no mention was made of road closures on the website. With two handicapped individuals... More

There's a fee to park at the car park. Went to hike the Inspiration Trail. Short walk and we were up on top and could see the ocean although the view wasn't very clear. Went back down to wait for the Ranch House tour that started at the top of every hour. That was good =) The guide was very... More

Had a pretty sweet hike up and down the promontory hill. Amazing views of Santa Monica and Downtown Los Angeles. No parking fee if you just set up camp a bit further down the hill. There was even a polo match played on the grounds. Apparantly some Hollywood stars head up here at times, because it's not particularly crowded.
