Lovely walk down oak shaded lane, a stunning rock pool with vertical walls of volcanic rock, and a picturesque lake pretty enough for a calendar. An easy hike with lots of variety. At the Rock Pool, watch rock climbers attempt to scale the Planet of the Apes wall, were the movie of the same names was filmed. When you reach Century lake, make sure to take the path down to the lake, its a truly spectacular place to stop for a picnic. Those with more energy can continue on several miles past Century lake to the site of the old M.A.S.H television series.

Nice little hike. Very easy except for one grade that is still moderate. Watch climbers a bit off the main trail before the grade.

This is my new favourite hike. Parked on mulholland for free (or its $12 at the parking lot) and hiked in on the grassland trail. Lots of shady places to rest and the hike itself up to the Mash set is pretty straight forward. Beautiful trees and a lush setting. Quite a few people on the lower part of hike but once I got past the pool trail I only saw a few people. Highly recommend.

Beautiful hike. Nice paths, wonderful flowers. Many bees. Many alternate trails to explore. Overhead coverage is refreshing. Lake area is nice. Traffic was light.

Love Malibu Creek State Park. Beautiful views and I loved swimming in the rock pools. Definitely recommend for a fun weekend with your friends/family

Perfect hike for a family with an early reward, the Rock Pool. Trails are wide making it easy for littles. Lots of great shady nooks along the way to rest/have a picnic.
