Nice walk to see the M*A*S*H site!

We met friends to walk here and it turned out the extra bonus was that one trail leads to the filming site for M*A*S*H. Some of the set is still there. Very fun. Apparently this... read more

We met friends to walk here and it turned out the extra bonus was that one trail leads to the filming site for M*A*S*H. Some of the set is still there. Very fun. Apparently this area has been used for several films so there is the Planet of the Apes wall and the cliff that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance... More

We hiked to the filming site for MASH from the corner of Mulhulland Drive and Las Virgenes. There is a large parking lot on the corner and you can park for free vs. $12 in the lot. The hike is fairly flat and the path is wide and clean.

Arriving at the park in late Saturday morning in early October the parking lot was wide open for parking. Each parking area had a separate set of restrooms which were very clean and didn't have any offensive odors. After frequenting national park restrooms with mostly pit toilets and smelly surroundings, this was a pleasant surprise. We visited the small visitor... More

Great place to hike, but the paths are NOT well-marked. The free map is not too helpful, might be worth it to pay the extra $2 for the detailed map. The terrain is not to tough to walk, but your feet get dirty. Don't go without bringing water. Definitely stop by the Visitors Center and watch the short video about... More

This could've been more scenic, but the drought has taken it's toll on the park. Hot, dry and dusty. Trails are not well marked, and the visitor center is only open on weekends after Labor Day.

Relaxing and wild. Only a few sign posts along the way thus make sure to have a good offline map (maps.me is my favourite) if it's your first time. Worth checking out M*A*S*H site.

A very nice park. Clean and big. A big track mostly shaded which is good during the summer season . It gets very narrow after about two miles but the hike is great. One draw back is that the parking costs usd 12.

You may see some jump into the water by the falls, but don't. The water is waste runoff and is not something you want your skin exposed to. The MASH set is worth the hike, but be sure you're able to hike the distance. This park still gets pretty warm in spite of its proximity to the beach, so bring... More

We went early one morning after breakfast It was so quiet and peaceful, a lovely walk. A few steps to go down into the woodlands but worth it.

Went for a small hike with my boyfriend. We walked past a metal bar. And turned back to realize it was a huge rattle snake. We slowly backed away and watched it go back into the bushes this was at the start of the trail so it kept us really aware for the rest of the hike.
