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.

Wow, what a breathtaking place! Nature so close to the city, with an easy half-day trip from LA with highly accessible nature trails. You get there via the kind of mountain highway used in commercials for sports cars. In this sense, the journey is part of the destination. We had a little trouble finding it at first, because there was... More

We walked about 1.5 hours up and down. The walk was moderate and there were a few spots with a great view. Take your camera and water.

I love this park for the beauty and variety it holds. From oak and sycamore filled glens to climbing to the top of Eagle Rock, wide meadows (so beautiful in the Spring) to a large pond, this is an amazing slice of what the Santa Monica Mountains looked like before being developed. A true jewel.

Topanga State Park is so huge that it's best to Google it and check the layout. Then you can decide just which part that you want to visit this trip - many trips are needed to see & enjoy it all. Plus you get great Santa Monica Mointain views while you hike. TIP: My favorite entry is through Temescal Canyon... More

I visited this park with a friend and it was a fun time. We started near Trippet Ranch, hiked through Santa Ynez Canyon, and ended up in Pacific Palisades. The trail was well-maintained and we found a couple of caves during our hike.

I first found this place by going and searching for off the grid explorations and found a review of Murphy Ranch Nazi Camp in Topanga State Park. This park is home to a camp that houses old buildings covered in graffiti and picture worthy scenic views. You'll enter the park and notice stairs and a gate, it's a long walk.... More

A lovely park with access to the backbone trail, a hiking trail with mountain and ocean views that runs from Will Rogers state park in the Palisades all the way to the ocean past Malibu and Leo Carrillo state park at Point Magoo.
