  • It is an immense natural reserve, which allows you to walk to enjoy an almost untouched nature for km: it is therefore ideal for weekend walks, away from the hustle and bustle.

  • Great place to visit. Hiked to eagles rock here and really enjoyed the hike. Fairly easy trail.
  • Amongst all the traffic, concrete, and aggressive housing projects, this place remains what it looked liked before people settled here. It is beautiful and rugged and amazing. Great for hiking, running, biking, or just hanging out.
  • This park is great for long hikes, mountain biking, bird watching, plein air painting and photography. Beautiful views of the ocean, mountains and the city of Los Angeles during every season provide plenty of subject matter for artists, photographers and nature enthusiasts. The park is huge with many entrances, some have parking lots and facilities others do not.
  • Beautiful state park near Malibu with great views of the ocean. Not too much tree coverage so apply sunscreen. It can get pretty hot here.
  • Topanga is a beautiful place that has a rich environment and a rich history going all the way back to the Tongva people. There are so many trails, I have been here 7 years and have only started 😀
