REQUIREMENTS: WATER (at least 1.5 to 2 liters).
HIKE WALKTHROUGH: The hike will start at the Topanga State Park Trippet Ranch parking lot. We’ll head up a good stead incline for about a mile. From there we’ll keep encountering small bumps on a quite leveled trail for about 1/3 of a mile. Again we continue a gain until we get to the side trail that will take us up to Eagle Rock. This will be a bit more intense, but is easily conquered. Once at the top you can enjoy a great energy filled view from Eagle Rock. We’ll take the same trail back, although there is a possibility we may return on Muench Trail depending on the the hikers’ status.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
