HikingGreat!

Loved it. Great workout. Amazing views. I made it up and back just under three hours without pushing myself too much. I look forward to doing it again. Also I saw a very young big cat that crossed the path in front of me, and deer, all in the first mile. The deer were still there when I came back down again too.

HikingGreat!

I’m tackling the Backbone Trail from east to west in 4 sections. On Wednesday, 11/25/2020, I hiked/ran section 1 from Will Rogers State Park to the Lois Ewen Lookout (17.5 miles). I started at 8:20 am and ended at 1:30 pm. It was amazing! Great terrain, ecosystems, views, weather... Magical day out there! A few notes for section 1: 1) The parking pass machine at the Will Rogers trailhead was broken and there was no attendant so I didn’t know how to pay for parking... 2) Over the entire 17.5 miles, there were 15.5 miles of single track and 2 miles of fire road. 3) Hiking from east to west on this trail was great because the sun was behind me instead of shining right into my eyes. 4) Although there are no natural water sources on the trail, I noticed 3 water fountains at about mile 10, 11, and 12.5. 5) I arranged for a pick up at the end of the trail (Lois Ewen Lookout) and returned to the start to pick up my car. 6) Cell phone service (AT&T) was spotty throughout but my Garmin InReach Satellite device worked great.

Beautiful steep trail. Great for adults, hard work for my 7 year old. We skipped the skull rock section.

This is a nice, manageable section to enjoy on the Backbone trail. Tons of shade, not too many other people.

WalkingGreat!

I enjoyed the trail i went on a Saturday it was a lot of cars parked and a good amount of people there but luckily for me as I started my hike there wasn’t anyone by me. Definitely a popular trail. It has a cute trail that leads to a view with benches, perfect for a date then after the benches a much more difficult incline hike good for a workout

No view of anything but I liked the shades. Like other reviews, there is no waterfall. The parking is free. I parked on the side of the road. The trailhead is hard to find but it’s at the end of the road, entrance is on the right.

Hiking

It’s very scenic, half of the trail going clockwise. But, the second half is a combination of Indiana Jones “adventurous” mixed with Blair Witch project scary. We got semi-lost past the Painted House , at the creek level (mile 3.8). Pretty much same story explained in all previous reviews. The fear of uncertainty forced us to look for an alternate route, which involved a cruel million steps (exaggeration here) going uphill, past the painted graffiti/artsy/pimped house. Going this way added another 4 miles for a grand total of 9.5 miles, 4.5 hrs, 1 fall, & few cuts/bruises. We still enjoyed it enough to give it 4 stars. ....just wish the State park peps would post more advisories at the trailhead. Save others from getting lost or in danger.

HikingGreat!

Lots of free parking and on a Sunday it gets very crowded. The majority of hikers are wearing masks due to the narrow path going up to the ocean view lookout approximately 1.6 miles. From the lookout the path becomes a wide fire road where you can continue going uphill if you like. Wear a hat on a hot summer day due to the lack of trees.

Running

Epic and tough. I clocked it at 15.2 miles from Temescal/Sunset, using Temescal Canyon trail to get up to Skull Rock (which extends the mileage by about 0.5mi). I find the Canyon trail prettier and a bit less brutally steep... so you can save the energy for the continued climb up Temescal Ridge. The section of Temescal Ridge between the power station and Trailer Canyon has the best views I’ve seen in Topanga State Park—downtown, Westwood, mountains, and the ocean all visible at once. Wow. Heading down Backbone, the overgrown part from mi 8-10 is not bad, just weeds on either side, and no poison oak. Rivas Canyon trailhead is easy to miss. When you descend to the Will Rogers parking lot, look for a low trail sign on the right next to what looks like a narrow concrete drainage path. Rivas has some poison oak on the side of the trail.

Beautiful but way too crowded. Will never go back on a weekend, it was uncomfortable even without a pandemic. Good workout though!

Great hike, go Temescal Ridge to Canyon for a quicker incline and more of a workout. Stay safe and Happy Trails!
