This park is about a 40 minutes from Los Angeles, and it's not hard to find. You can choose from among about 5-6 trails that range from 1 mile to nearly 10. more »
I work in this area so I had a chance to find all the beautiful spots to sight see. Great views of Malibu, SF Valley and Santa Monica and Venice areas.
Easy-moderate hike. After visiting the eagle rock and the cave, we took another trail on your way back (right side) which goes to the ranch and finally to the parking lot. Be careful when you want to see the cave. And finally, synthesize with the nature⚘.
