Malibu Creek State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A popular day trip from Los Angeles or the San Fernando
Valley, this hike takes you on an easy walk to a picturesque
swimming hole and then past the crowds to the lesser visited
but equally stunning Century Lake. You will pass through a
number of locations used in filming TV shows and movies
including Planet of the Apes and the Swiss Family Robinson."
