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

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
