We enjoyed fabulous views from Inspirarion Point, with a very nice walk through the park. We also took in the visitors' centre and docent tour (on the hour) of Will Rogers' ranch. Fascinating history and beautifully preserved artefacts. Whilst you may choke on the $12 parking fee, everything else is free and there is a lot of upkeep for the... More

Will Rogers Park is a true hidden gem & it's kinda hard to locate so use the GPS. Once there you have lots to do. 1) Tour the old Will Rogers' house & see memorabilia. 2) Watch a Polo game on a Sunday in season, or 3) Hike any of the nice trails leading out. Fun, you'll enjoy. ...

Really lovely hike with great views. It was a bit hot and dusty, even in November, but had a good hour, very easy-going walk. Well worth the trip out here. The house also looked nice but was closed on a Monday.

I love this park. Catchy to get too so keep your eyes peeled for the turn off. A spectacular view and don't forget to enjoy the POLO games here as well. Be safe and take a whistle or something for protection (snakes) can be found here on the higher ground. Water and food always good to take along. This is... More

The Ranch house is nicely preserved and the guided tour was fantastic. The grounds are picturesque and well kept. I didn't get to do the hiking trails but did walk up to the barns and was rewarded with beauitful view and lots of wild and domestic animals. Highly recommend visiting and taking advantage of the gorgeous park.

I came to see the Will Rogers ranch house. The 50 minute free tour was excellent. Will Rogers loved the outdoors. He had a real ranch here with horses. The ranch house started small. He expanded it with a second story. There is a patio between the two wings of the house where he had BBQ. The house has many... More

At times, the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles can be a bit much. To experience the feeling of "getting away from it all" in a day trip, I recommend Will Rogers State Park near Pacific Palisades. You can tour Rogers's historic home, choose from several hikes(including the popular "loop hike"), or enjoy a picnic on the lawn. From May... More
