Topanga State Park offers a great hiking day with a stunning view of the pacific ocean (2.8 mi) and Eagle Rock (1.8 mi). Great for a walk, trail running and even mountain bike. Be prepared with water and a quick snack! Average 3-4 hours.

I did a long hike up Trippett Ranch Trail up to Eagle Rock, where I did see and hear, in fact, a number of eagles. There were beautiful vistas, often on both sides, aside from a large variety of plant life and birds. The hike, overall, was quite challenging, but was on quite secure terrain, following the system of fire... More

The Musch Trail is definitely the most scenic way to get up to Eagle Rock. The trail winds through the natural vegetation. You get a chance to get to see the flowers, oaks and of course the poison oak up close. I volunteer in the park and our group, the Topanga Canyon Docents, have free 2 hour guided walks every...

Had a good time on the Eagle Rock, with a great view to Santa Monica beach and around. The hike took about 1h and was really nice to walk. There are many trails to go and the park is well arranged. have a good time!

I have hired a bike from Topanga Creek Bicycles several times to ride the 10 mile loop through the park and it's a great way to spend an hour or two. It does get extremely hot though and there is not much shade and no potable water to fill your camelbak or bottle so - be prepared!! There's some awesome... More

The "park" is huge . With many trailheads . Go in the morning or late afternoon to capture the magic. There is a small heard of deer that appear evening. As far as value...you can avoid the fee by parking at the end of Entrada and walking 30 feet through a side gate.

Not the easiest to get to nor the most spectacular in CA - but still amazing and accessible to Los Angeles. Highly recommended for hiking. Possible to hike to parts of the park where the entire Santa Monica Bay coastline is visible!

I have some friends whose back yard is this park. Brilliant purchase. They will always have this amazing view, unless of course everything goes up in smoke.....

Grew up in these hills. Always miss it no matter where I am. The Topanga Mountains are the best. You're so close to the "world" yet completely in your own. A great escape. Also leads you to the ocean. The views are spectacular and the energy is perfect. Lots to explore within <3

As much as I love LA, this is an oasis in case you want to escape the city for a while. You can hike, jog, relax, seat and eat, enjoy the views and just breath some fresh air in the middle of nature within the LA metropolitan area. You can come for a short while or stay for hours! Once... More
