Malibu Creek State Park

Considered the recreational crown jewel of the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu Creek State Park has over 7,000 acres of rolling tallgrass plains, oak savannahs and dramatic peaks. It’s no wonder many call it “The Yosemite of Southern California”.

The park, formerly owned by 20th Century Fox Studios, opened in 1976 and has welcomed millions of visitors since. The stunning terrain here that has been seen all over the world in movies and television awaits you. Come hike, ride, climb and explore L.A.’s most spectacular park!

What makes the park so great?  Dramatic, jagged peaks, stunning canyon vistas, oak woodlands, rolling hills of tallgrass, a large volcanic swimming hole, world class hiking, biking and rock climbing and more!  See the “Have Fun” page.

The park is something of a miracle when you consider how little of it has changed since the Chumash settled here 5,000 to 10,000 years ago.

While visiting, you may get a glimpse of the abundant wildlife enjoying the habitat we strive to keep safe. Please join us in our efforts to preserve and protect this magnificent park.
