I spent a few hours hiking in the park with my young son and we had a lot of fun. To help keep my son engaged and entertained during our hike, I found an interesting iPhone app called "Git Your Goat." It lets you create a lot of goats along the trail and when you reach the spot with a... More

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

Because of my work, sometimes I get a chance to eat my lunch in this wonderful place and I do forget that I'm in the CITY of 3.9 million people. It's just nice to have a place where one can sit and relax and the only one sees is a deer, wild rabbits, and enjoy nature so close.

Great hike. Everyone has already posted there smartphone pics, so you know the excellent view from the end point that your eyes are going to feast on. I will not say the trail is easy, but there are some spots on the way where you can stop in the shade. It seemed to me like a cardio trail, with numerous... More

Aside Runyon Canyon, there aren't a lot of places where you can be in pure nature and still be a hop-skip from the Strip. Topanga is one of the options you have, and it is lovely. Trails are varied and reasonably well-marked, there are 36 miles of them, you can go for hours and not see another hiker (depending on... More

When I need a breather and see something other than cars and buildings…I love coming with my dog, friends and sometimes just solo.

I absolutely love the hikes in Topanga SP, Parker Mesa and Eagle Rock especially. There are beautiful dear, birds and the trail is incredible. I also love visiting "Hidden Treasures" every time I drive to Topanga. Take a look at my post describing the hike to Eagle Rock as well as my visit to "Hidden Treasures," photos included. Enjoy! http://mrandmrsadventure.com/2013/12/22/visiting-hidden-treasures-and-hiking-to-eagle-rock/

I live nearby so we go hiking in or near Topanga State Park almost every weekend. The trails and views are gorgeous, sometimes there are a lot of people on the trails but if you catch the early morning or evening hours you can experience a very peaceful environment, birdlife, deer etc. Watch out for snakes or even for poison...

We hiked to eagle rock on a beautiful Sunday morning in September. The views were tremendous, as was the $10 fee to park ! How in the world do they not include a trail map with that fee??? It was about 85 degrees that day and even though we specifically asked the ranger about the degree of difficulty of the... More
