  • This is a wonderful place to hike in the Malibu Canyon. If you are afraid of heights, get some one else to drive you up Malibu Canyon road! No one seems to go in the main gate where you have to pay. P...  more »
  • Always worth weekend visits! Your parking pass is also good for the "day" at any other State Park's, like Malibu Lagoon! Visit the Visitor Center for help on good trails, buy a cool drink, or just to ...  more »
  • Awesome area for a hike/walk. Just gorgeous!! Easy parking and nice wide trails. If your a fan of MASH then this is for you, if not it's still for you. Enjoy!

  • One of my favorite hikes so far. We drove an hour from Anaheim. Once we got there, we parked on the street. Then we walked for 10 minutes to get to the hike,and passed by some beautiful homes. The hike has some steep parts to work out your glutts, and some flat surface to catch a breather. It's prob one of our easiest hike, we saw little kids on this trail. After an hour you will reach, the waterfall, but you will be kind of disappointed because of the drought. At this point if you want to challenge yourself, you can use the ropes to climb to the top of the cliff, and that view is amazing.
  • Great camp site. Friendly and helpful staff. Get hiking trails. Views of deer and large grass fields. Watering hole along a nice relaxing hike. Will definitely be there again for another camping trip in the future.
  • The Rock Pool in Malibu State Park is a really special place for residents of Los Angeles County. We don't have a lot of natural lakes and rivers. Most creeks and waterfalls go dry in the summer until next winter, when rains return. The Rock Pool however stays full of water year round. A two and a half mile round trip hike from the parking area takes you over grassy hills, past wandering deer, across a creek bed, through a wooded area full of boulders to this secluded and hidden place. On hot days locals come here to jump off of huge boulders into the water and swim. Rock climbers practice their sport on the surrounding cliffs. Many local plein air artists create their work here.
  • Really laid back park. It's super easily laid out and there's rangers around so you feel really safe. The trails are marked well easy to traverse. There's some unexpected inclines here and there, but they're doable. Just be ready for them. Take plenty of water too, just in case. Also, the spots where they filmed MASH are super cool.
  • It is very beautiful it is amazing how at the end of your trip you go to the big lake and get to a little waterfall i absoulutly recomend this place
