This is a wonderful place to hike in the Malibu Canyon. If you are afraid of heights, get some one else to drive you up Malibu Canyon road! No one seems to go in the main gate where you have to pay. Park on the road a little farther up and enter the park. We walked to two sites...the Rock... More

Always worth weekend visits! Your parking pass is also good for the "day" at any other State Park's, like Malibu Lagoon! Visit the Visitor Center for help on good trails, buy a cool drink, or just to see what wonders can be seen in the Park via the exhibits. Come during the summer and camp. Bring the kids to the...

My husband and I live only a couple of miles from this gem of a park, and have been here multiple times, mostly walking to the Rock Pool. My husband has photographed this spot in every season, as it is constantly changing. It is so tranquil and serene, especially if you go first thing in the morning. It's amazing to... More

This was an unexpected gem as we only went to Calabasas cuz we were hoping to see the Kardashians houses :-) to get a chance to come here you need to check out the Malibu Creek. It's pretty

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.
