Take in a polo match or tour the ranch house. Or take a hike, which is what my group does when we visit. All the main trails are easy "fire roads" that route roughly in figure 8 loops around the park. Inspiration Point is the...More

While it is a little pricey to park ( so plan on staying for a few hours) it is a huge beautiful park. On Sundays you can watch Polo matches..so much fun.

I've been to this park several times over the last 10 years. It has a good amount of walking trails that wind up, down, and around the rolling hills above the neighborhoods of Pacific Palisades and Brentwood. There's not a great deal of vegetation because...More

This used to be Will Rogers' house and ranch. When I saw it many years ago, I expected it to be a tacky, wildly lavish movie star's palatial estate but it wasn't at all. When I saw his living room, it looked like a really...More

Parking fee paid on entrance to park. As you enter you see the polo field which is very well maintained and used (we were told) every weekend. There is a small gift shop and theatre featuring Will to view before taking the house tour. The...More

Good small trail park. It is a simple and moderate close to 3 miles loop. Great look up point at Inspiration Point. Family friendly park but with a parking fee.

Although I was aware of Will Rogers, I hadn't really appreciated his importance in early 20th century American popular culture until visiting this park which preserves much of his former ranch and belongings. We arrived on a Tuesday morning and it was very quiet. Threatening...More
