Hike Stoney Point Park

1 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Sassy Resuello

Popular spot for rock climbers, but you don't need to have rock climbing experience to get to the top. This park offers huge boulders, mini-caves, and short trails.. great for last minute hikes, which gives an awesome view of the sunset.

Once you've parked along Topanga Canyon Blvd, make your way down the street and start the trail off near the steel gate, close to the horse stables. As you make your way in, you will notice some rock climbers practicing on the lower elevation rocks.

Make your way around this rocky park, counter-clockwise, and soon enough you will notice multiple trails headed for the peak. Feel free to choose which path to take, it doesn't really matter for as long as you keep going up, you will reach top. In some cases you will need to pull yourself up, or pass through small crevices, and also scramble through rocks. Explore as much as you can! You will have plenty of time, because the trail to the top is quite short. Once you get to the top, wait for the sun to set. You also get to see the busy street from down below, so it's so nice to feel the serenity from up there.

Be sure to head down the opposite side from where you entered the park, because there you will get to see train tracks and a tunnel, which can be pretty cool for photos. Exit the park where you see Topanga Canyon Blvd, and simply make your way down the street, back to your car.

A quick adventure near the heart of the city

This is a lovely little experience and so close to the city. Went there on a late afternoon to catch the sunset. Came back when it was dark. There is an alternate route/access point which we took that starts from where Canoga crosses Rt 118. It adds 1 more mile to the trail for the ones who want to walk more. The end part is a climb where you have to cross boulders and move through crevices. Nice adventure overall.

Boulder, Steep Drops, Stables, And Hidden Treasures

Wonderful surprise for a hiking spot. Drove by so many times without taking a second look at the Stony Mountain. Not til my Partner in Crime wanted some adventure did we take a chance on this fantastic spot.
