Hike Stoney Point Park
Los Angeles › Stoney Point Park
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.

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.
