This fire road provides an alternate route to Mulholland Drive within Topanga State Park. The trail rises sharply at its eastern end and then remains fairly flat for the remaining two thirds. After the steep portion, there is a spur trail located off to the south called Farmers Ridge Trail.
Farmer Ridge Fire Road can be accessed from the staging area at the end of Reseda Boulevard in Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park via Mulholland Drive (fire road). From the 101, exit at Reseda Boulevard in Encino and head south. Turn left to stay on Reseda Boulevard and travel 3.5 miles to the end. Parking will be on the right before the roundabout. Follow fire road past gate to trail.
