We went hiking up a 2.0 mile trail up to Inspiration point. The grounds are nice with a huge soccer/Polo field along with stables with horses/guides for hire. The trail (one of many) winds past historic structures and greenery. At trails end is a spectacular vista of Santa Monica, LA and of course the Pacific. Very beautiful and a nice... More

I can't believe I was born in Los Angeles and have never come to this State Park. It is BEAUTIFUL!!! We took the family horseback riding and saw the most beautiful views I have ever seen in LA. We saw tons of people hiking, walking their dogs, picnicking and setting up to watch Polo matches. My family and I have... More

Very serene park, spread out in a large area. Will Rogers`s house is very-well maintained and beautifully preserved.

I again was fooled by the website for the Will Rogers State Park. It does state that tours are provided on the hour, but it doesn't say that the house is closed to visitors who choose not to tour with a docent. With LA traffic we made it to the house at five minutes past the hour, so a locked... More

Will Rogers State Historic Park is situated off Sunset Blvd. in West Los Angeles. Its keystone is the rambling former home of the cowboy-humorist, which has docent-led tours. The sprawling grounds (which include a Polo Field and the remains of some golf practice holes) are the perfect place to picnic and play Frisbee. And there is more: a short walk... More

Really beautiful place with lots of history. Nobody was complaining because the hike wasn't that long and the views rocked. Bring a picnic. No food here and you don't want to rush out of there. Parking is not free unless you park down the block and walk in but people, please pay! We need parks like this to be able... More

This is a must if you are in the Malibu vicinity and an excellent add on if visiting the Getty Villa. Be prepared to pay $12 for parking ($11 Senior). But the docent led tour is free. And the house contains some magnificent cowboy artwork (Charles Russell), beautiful Native American blankets and is a testimonial to the life style of... More

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
