Visitor Center Road Trail is a short connector trail in Trippet Ranch. Trippet Ranch is the main access point into Topanga State Park. Formerly a weekend ranch retreat, the trails here are characterized by picturesque oak groves and open meadows. Many of the trails originating here make excellent connections to longer hikes within the park.
The main Trippet Ranch staging area is located on Entrada Rd. From the PCH, travel north on Topanga Canyon Blvd, pass the post office at the center of “town,” then turn right on Entrada Rd. Keep to the left at every opportunity until you reach the park’s main parking lot (about one mile). From the 101, exit at Topanga Canyon Blvd, drive south over the crest of the mountains and proceed three miles to Entrada Rd and turn left into the park’s main parking lot.
