About the Location:
This iconic sandstone outcrop sits at an angle that attests to its seismic origins. This hike begins at a beautiful picnic area with a pond and a one-mile nature trail in Topanga State Park. The hike follows a fire road up to Eagle Rock, an impressive sandstone rock covered with crevices and caves. The views of the mountains and valleys along this trail, including Santa Ynez Canyon, are superb. The return on the Musch Trail descends past oak, sycamore, and bay trees. This footpath includes lush vegetation, ferns, moss-covered rocks, and stream crossings. In fact, there are two fault lines running through the park: the Topanga and the Santa Ynez faults.
Directions & Parking:
From PCH, take Topanga Canyon Road inland for 4.6 miles to Entrada Road. Alternately, from the 101 Freeway, drive 7.7 miles south on Topanga Canyon Road to reach Entrada Road. Turn east on Entrada Road and drive up the mountain for one mile, following signs for Topanga State Park. There is a $10 day-use fee to park at Trippet Ranch, which is open from 8:00 a.m. to sunset. Free parking is available along the road just outside the park.
