Rustic Canyon

Rustic Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"Rustic Canyon, now almost fully reverted to wilderness condition after Nature’s one-two punches of fire and flood, was quite lively in the past. Pop-philosopher Will Rogers and his associates used it as a retreat back in the 1930s, and it even held the makings of a hideout for Nazi sympathizers later in the 20th Century.

A 1-mile self-guiding nature trail, and trail-park also serves as a key anchor in the patchwork quilt of public and private lands heads for several of the wide-ranging routes known as the Santa Monica Mountains described in this chapter. The trail system is National Recreational Area."
