I enjoyed my visit to the park. Polo matches on the weekends, great hiking with excellent views. Stay on the fire roads for the easiest hike. The trails have some steep areas, and you need sturdy shoes if you use them. The marine layer stayed in place while I was there. I'm certain the views can be spectacular on clear days. I will certainly visit again to take the ranch house tour. Great photo ops during the polo matches.

Take in a polo match or tour the ranch house. Or take a hike, which is what my group does when we visit. All the main trails are easy "fire roads" that route roughly in figure 8 loops around the park. Inspiration Point is the climax of the trail, with the reward of a spectacular 360 degree view of Santa Monica Bay and the surrounding coastal mountains. Great place to introduce kids to hiking. $12 fee for parking which helps subsidize the ailing State Park system, although free parking is usually available along the road leading up to the parking lot.

Enjoyed break from shops and freeways by taking quick hike to Inspiration Point to look out over City and Pacific coast, caught a glimpse of Beverly Hills Polo exhibition

While it is a little pricey to park ( so plan on staying for a few hours) it is a huge beautiful park. On Sundays you can watch Polo matches..so much fun.

I've been to this park several times over the last 10 years. It has a good amount of walking trails that wind up, down, and around the rolling hills above the neighborhoods of Pacific Palisades and Brentwood. There's not a great deal of vegetation because of the almost desert-like climate, but that's mainly a good thing because it means there are lots of pretty views in every direction, especially looking out to Santa Monica Bay. There are a few benches where visitors can stop and rest, which is probably a welcome relief to those not accustomed to a fairly rugged setting. The downside is parking costs $12 (or is it $15?).
