  • The park has an easy & accessible parking lot, where they have an electronic meter to pay via credit card. The hikes & walking paths are smooth & well worn. You can hike on flat paths or some with hil...  more »
  • I went on a weekday morning, so there was minimal information available at the park. The trails seem to be well used, but are very poorly marked, and the sign in the parking area was also not clear. T...  more »
  • My family are huge fans of the TV show M*A*S*H and so my husband and I could not take a trip to California without making a trip to see the where the show filmed its outdoor scenes. We had a map in ha...  more »

  • We did the hike to the MASH filming site. Beautiful day and lovely hike. Not overly challenging but just enough exertion so one knows one has hiked. MASH site is well marked with explanatory signs and interesting information. Also great photo opportunities. We saw three hawks soaring above - so beautiful! Interesting vegetation! Highly enjoyable!
  • An awesome place to get away. We went a week after it rained heavily and everything was green and lush. Bring water and be ready to explore every small trail and enjoy the multiple trails. Lots of benches to take a break and enjoy a snack or lunch.
  • Went here to rock climb in late August and had a great day out. The park is pretty big with great hiking and mountain biking trails. Moreover it was quite beautiful, and worth a drive up from LA. A lot of people come here for the swimming hole which, at least this time of year, looked pretty disgusting to me because the water was stagnant, and only filled the hole itself. Though I definitely would not have gone in, large groups were there jumping in from pretty high heights.... probably fun if the water quality is better. Either way it was a great trip and the rock climbing is pretty fun and clear on mountain project.
  • Nice park. $12.00 to park. I saw where they made the show MASH which was pretty cool. I've also seen deer. Can't wait to hike more trails.
  • Incredible Park, just down the road if you're staying in Calabasas. If you come here, you'll recognize many things you've seen over the years in movies and television shows. Mash was filmed here and there's a trail that leads right to the outdoor set where they filmed, there's some old abandoned Jeeps left from the show and they have everything mapped out so you can tell where they were filming. There's also Century Lake and The Rock pool. All five of the original Planet of the Apes films filmed here. Park is loaded with trails and every direction there are golden Rolling Hills and grassland. Easy to see why they film so much here, it's gorgeous and looks like a giant outdoor movie set. I don't think I've ever been in a more pretty Park. Place is huge, easily you could spend a day or two here. There's also an information center Ranch House that tells about the history of the place. If you're in Calabasas or Malibu area, this definitely has to be on your list. I waited a long time to come here and see this, and it absolutely did not disappoint.
