Really enjoyed heading to this place - drive was nice, combined with other areas of interest en route (Malibu / Canyons). Scenic and tranquil, with friendly and helpful staff at the visitor centre, as well as around the ranch itself, if you need any advice. Also found out that this is the location of the Biggest Loser USA ranch, if... More

Visitor Center is small but is packed with things to do and learn. Check their schedule first as they often have programs that you may be able to listen to while on your visit. If you like to hike, you are close to the old Ronald Reagan ranch as well as Malibu Creek State Park (that still has remnants of... More

This is one of those places that have so much history and you can only imagine the grander of days gone by. An abundance of trails to walk and the beauty make it a must stop to spend a few quiet hours and enjoy!

This place is worth a stop for aimple down time. Not prolific but the grounds are vast & you certainly feel out of the city. The visitors center is simple; its more fun when they have a guest speaker, pottery show or green rexycling presentarion. This is a great place to being a picnic with lots of room to wander.

This 588 acre site, once the home of the Gillette razor offers an informative visitors center, the mansion and plenty of hiking trails. The mansion and other buildings are not open to the public. The "Biggest Loser" is filmed here. Allow 2 hours.

We always enjoy visiting the King Gillette Ranch this time of year before it gets too hot, and before the summer crowds show up. It's a pastoral setting on Mulholland between Malibu and Calabassas sited on gently rolling country. Has a great visitor's center which outlines the history, has exhibits & dioramas, and has a quaint little gift shop. There's... More
