Tour guide very friendly and well informed. Property is well restored and visitor friendly. Parking is abundant and easy to use. Car friendly. Film should not be missed. Signs for finding its location could be improved.

Took the dog for a ramble at the park on Sunday morning, easy to negotiate trails and multiple spots to rest and take in the great views of Santa Monica and Downtown LA.

Will Rogers state park is a little gem hidden above Sunset. Parking is $15 or, if you're lucky, free down a ways from the gate (before the stop sign - pay attention to the signs!) Once in the park, there are hiking trails into various...More
