An all time favorite park of mine! This urban respite is within easy access of the Los Angeles area, both from the San Fernando Valley, and from the south, thru the Pacific Palisades.
I’ve had good times here hiking, biking, and having picnics with friends and family!
The park entrance has signage directing visitors to pay and display stubs or pay online.
There’s also street parking along Entrada Rd. where it may be safe to do so! Also for long distance trail user’s, parking down at Palisades Highlands and hiking up may be possible. Access from the lower trails may be affected after the most recent wildfires.
Making the best of it, even a short hike from the entrance, thru to the edge, or lookout and around back to Entrada Rd, makes for a glorious time! This short loop can be completed in under an hour, passing thru a mix of coastal desert hills and oak tree wilderness, including ocean views!
Fair warning, watch out for wildlife!
Wild deer are plentiful out here, and can be very skittish if encountered suddenly, so I freeze at first sight and try to get a better look at these graceful creatures.
While I’ve heard about wildcats and coyotes, I’ve never had a problem with them in all the times I’ve gone hiking here. Though have almost stepped on a large rattlesnake, and now watch my step on those trails!
Another concern especially at the creeks along the lower trails, are ticks. These little critters like moist, dark places and can quickly hitch a ride on unsuspecting hikers. I’ve made it a practice to do a body check in the restroom, before getting back in my vehicle!
Sun exposure may be a consideration, so best be prepared, taking appropriate measures for any length of trails and time out in the open!

Truly wonderful State Park, great hiking trails with breathtaking views and beautiful nature.
The beach,also city of LA views are dreamy, great for a hiking or camping day.
Malibu wonderful beaches are just a few minutes drive away so it’s a great location.

Took the Bonehead trail. Make sure to bring exact change as the station is unmanned, and for those wondering it does get checked at random to make sure you paid. It's $7 for day parking. This trail doesn't lead to the waterfall or Eagle Rock. We suggest you park at a closer lot if you want to get to those locations.
Overall, this trail is fairly easy and mostly shaded.

Great hike with lots of trails all over. The views are breathtaking of the whole ocean, Malibu and Los Angeles areas. Moderate hike depending on how far you go and what trails you choose. We started at the Los Leones trail head. It is very busy on the weekends. Hiking boots are not needed, it's a gradual climb with many switch backs. No bathrooms close by and parking can be hard to find on busy days. Trails are narrow at the beginning of the first mile, but it gets wider as you get to the top and then you can hike further up on a wider trail/road. There are lots of lookout points and one park bench at the first upper stopping point. Watch for snakes on hot days. Bring plenty of water and sun protection if you are worried about heat as there isn't shade.
There's so much to explore and many different starting points so plan and prepare and have fun.

We didn’t have enough time to get to the waterfall but the Santa Ynez trail had so many white flowers blooming on the hillside amidst the burnt trees, it was beautiful. Also not that crowded on a Sunday afternoon on the trails but parking on the streets outside the main parking lot was tight.

It's January 15, 2022. A gloomy Saturday afternoon. Temperature is perfect for hiking. You can already see some wild flowers are starting blooming. You can see the damage the hard rain caused (very deep holes in the ground).
Still It's beautiful. You can see the San Fernando Valley all the way to Simi Valley in the back.
At some points, you can see snow covered hills in the back far away.

Great hiking area. I came to check out the trail after the fires. Looked pretty apocalyptic until I found the little plants and trees growing amongst the ash. Great hike. Wear a hat as most of the shade has been burnt away.
