Topanga, California 90290
Red Rock Canyon Park is located in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains off of Old Topanga Canyon Road. The riparian canyon walls are fortified with huge red sandstone outcroppings, reminiscent of Southwest canyons and gorges. The park provides a key habitat linkage between Malibu Creek State Park and Topanga State Park.
The trail leads up a fire road through slopes blanketed with toyon, laurel sumac, mountain mahogany, bush sunflowers, and ceanothus to Calabassas Peak, providing spectacular views of the Santa Monica Mountains. It then descends and narrows to the cool bottom of Red Rock Canyon. The trail then meanders through fascinating sculptured rock formations in colors ranging from chalk white to deep red.
A small picnic area and drinking fountain are available at the trailhead.
• There is a $5 day use fee to park at the trailhead.
• Dogs allowed on leash. Please clean up after your pet.
