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

Bring you hiking boots. Get away from the city and see a landscape like nothing in Canada. The route in from Callon Road is an easy climb. With each bend and ascent new and wider vistas open up. Amazing fragrance of garrigue is so welcome after deep freeze of Canadian winter.

We tried hiking Topanga in a rainstorm because we didn't want to be deterred by the bad weather. We were not disappointed. Parking was convenient, we saw quite a few deer, and the views were great. If only it hadn't been pouring rain, the views would have been even better!

Began our hike from the Trippet Ranch parking lot and started on the 2 mile eagle rock path. Mostly up hill, scenic views. Gorgeous view from the top of eagle rock. Took Munsch trail back down for a change of scene. Over all an enjoyable hike.
