Inspiration Loop Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Take a stroll through the property of former Hollywoodstar Will Rogers while taking in the views, exploring his oldhomestead, and maybe even taking in a polo match. Hike onthe miles of trail that loop through the property or hike upand connect to the famous Backbone Trail—a 64-mile trailtraversing the Santa Monica Mountains."
--Bryn Fox Pitterle, Best Easy Day Hikes: West Los Angeles (Falcon Guides).
"This hike is a two-mile loop that starts and finishes at Will Rogers' home. The trail overlooks the Los Angeles Basin from downtown to the ocean. At the top of the loop is Inspiration Point, a flat knoll considered the best viewing area of the hike. Picnic grounds, horse riding stables, and daily tours of Will Rogers' house make visiting this state park a wonderful way to spend the day."
