The Red Rock Road Trail features numerous sculptured sandstone formations which provide the trail with its name and interesting scenery.

The first half of the trail winds around the arches and caves created by the rock formations. The trail then ascends to the ridgeline to the west where it intersects Calabasas Peak Motorway. A bench with a grand view west offers a great resting point.

Exit the 101 at Valley Circle Blvd and head south toward the mountains. Travel 0.6 mi. and turn right (south) onto Valmar Rd. Travel 1.1 mi. to Mulholland Hwy and turn right. Travel 0.2 mi. and turn left (south) onto Old Topanga Canyon Rd. Travel approx. 3.9 mi. up and over the ridgeline into the canyon and turn right onto Red Rock Rd. Travel through the neighborhood and continue on the unpaved road to the trailhead.

Los Angeles is lots more than jammed freeways, as anyone who’s taken time to explore its hilly terrain and beautiful beaches knows. Take in the vibrant urban scene on a paved trail one day, then head to the hills for a rural repast. The County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation maintains 177 parks, quite a few of which warmly welcome leashed canine visitors. And that’s not counting the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area or open space maintained under the stewardship of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancymore »
