One of the best ride you can take in nature. Great for bikers, and simply taking a ride or hiking. The smell of the eucalyptus and wild fennel is amazing. Also, variaty of wild animals is not to be missed.

We went to Topanga during our weekend in LA. We were looking for a nice/short hike and we loved it. Hiked Eagle Rock and it was totally worth it. I would recommend to start your day early and to bring water; it gets pretty hot!

We entered the Park from Pacific Palisades and quickly were above the Malibu coastline. This is such a wonderful hike and park. The trails are really well maintained, you can hike for miles if you want. A SoCal treasure for sure.

Selecting Topanga State Park was a wise use for protecting an area offering superb leisure recreational enjoyment. Have been a Topanga resident since inception of the Topanga State Park. We enjoy it's facilities frequently and hope it doesn't fall victim to budget closure.

On an especially inviting afternoon we wanted to go out and stretch our legs without driving for hours. Topanga State Park is perfect. It has many more trails of varying lengths and difficulties than we could take advantage of--it even has a campground. We walked a relatively flat 2-mile loop and then broke out a picnic basket at one of... More

A local resident recommended Trippet Ranch and we always have to check out what the locals recommend! Our stop here ended up being much more than we expected, and in a good way. The guide at the entrance suggested hiking to Eagle Rock. It was absolutely a beautiful hike at a moderate difficulty and certainly worth the time. It took... More

Beautiful hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulties. Horses share the trail with you. Great views of mountains, ocean, city, canyon. Cute places to grab lunch in the little town of Topanga.

This place is not easy to get to. You have to either come north from PCH or come south from Woodland Hills. It's definitely worth the drive. Many different hiking trails that range from easy to difficult. I've been here numerous times with my family, friends and with my students on a field trip. This park is very large and... More
