On a sunny clear morning in LA, there is no better place to go for views of all of LA and the coastline. Lots of families walking with and without dogs. People on horseback, and a few mountain bikers. After the spring rains the hills were all in bloom. Saw the rangers catch a snake. Oh well! Good to see some wildlife outside of Hollywood!

My wife and I received a wonderful gift from our daughters for Christmas. They gave us a horseback ride for two at Will Rogers State Park and it was an unforgettable experience and we loved it!

High above the Pacific Palisades along the curvy western end of Sunset is this gem. Though I was there on a Monday, when there were no house tours, just being able to walk the grounds was a treat.

The trail to Inspiration Point was not too taxing, but provided good exercise on a sunny afternoon. People with dogs, a cyclist, and even someone on horseback, were making the trek at the time I was. Along the hike up, you can get varied views of the polo field on the property, distant Santa Monica and downtown, some of the adjacent luxury homes, and the glittering Pacific. It definitely feels removed from all the urban hustle, yet is tucked within it.

For a taste of the California outdoors within city limits, this is a spot worth considering.

Conveneient and easy to get to, this park is a great place for a family picnic and hike that suits people of all ages, including little ones. Parking is easy, bathrooms are clean, and there's lots of open space for the kids to run around under supervision.

We missed the free house tour by about 10 minutes...

We walked the Inspiration Point trail. While it was a nice trail, at no point were either of us truly inspired. So, a bit of a disappointment given the name. :)

We could see some of the horses as we walked the paths.

If you can go to the house tour, which others seem to say is interesting, it's probably worth traveling to the park. But, if not, there's not much else to see here and I wouldn't go out of your way to see this park. The "hiking" part is similar to a lot of other parks in the vicinity.
