Malibu Creek State Park

Hiking in Malibu & Pacific Palisades

A beautiful spot in the Santa Monica Mountains, M*A*S*H and Planet of the Apes were shot here. Laced by a creek with swimming holes in the spring, this park has excellent hiking, with trails leading past craggy oaks and stately sycamores. The park is about 5 miles north of Pacific Coastal Hwy via Malibu Canyon Rd.

The park was badly damaged in the November 2018 Woolsey Fire, and although it has reopened visitors are requested to tread lightly to aid in the park's recovery.
