Topanga State Park

At 11,000 acres with 36 miles of trails, this park is not only the biggest in LA, but the world’s largest within the limits of a city. Most of the area is unadulterated California terrain; chaparral, grass, and sagebrush are the predominant flora here, painting the hillsides in variations of green, gray, or brown, depending on the season, though live oaks also dot the landscape here and there. Trails are open to hikers and, in suitable areas, mountain bikers and horseback riders. Climbs to the top of the trails will reward hikers with spectacular views of the valleys below and of the Pacific Ocean.
