You might want to rely on your GPS to take you up through the hills and bring you to the part of Will Rogers property that his widow gave to the State of California. This is a must wee site providing not only trails but entry into the Will Rogers house and on Sundays time to watch some polo. if you're only familiar with Will Rogers' name, do go into the house; tours start on the hour and lsat about forty minutes. The docents are more than knowledgeable and you'll learn more about the man who was once described as the most loved man in America. After you enjoy his legacy, you'll love him too. You'll have to pay to park, but bring your lunch, water, and good shoes.

We were on a road trip and wanted to see and do as much as we can. We were in the area, checked out the reviews and decided to try the hike. It wasn’t bad and if I can do it, you can do it as I am a big guy and have a bad back. The hike was calming and the weather was perfect. Just go!

During a visit to Santa Monica, my brother and I had a couple of hours free in which we could visit Will Rogers State Historic Park to hike up and back to Inspiration Point. What I like about this particular trail is that you feel the elevation gain immediately, but not so much that you cannot continue talking as you ascend. The trail is short enough that it can easily fit into part of a morning or afternoon journey without taking away the rest of the day for other activities.

Great location near Pacific Palisades will give you an easy walk on a dirt road that ends with a fantastic view of Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica. Parking is NOT free but you are giving back to state historic park. There are facilities near Will Rogers house; also great history area.

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!
