The Summer Hill Ranch Road Trail is a short and easy route that curves around a low-rising hill dotted with coastal live oak trees east of Topanga State Park. Enjoy a great “lollipop” outing by starting at the Viewridge Road Trailhead for the Santa Maria Canyon Trail and continuing on this
trail to complete the loop part of the “lollipop.”
From the 101, take the Topanga Canyon Blvd exit and head south on Topanga Canyon Blvd. Continue for 5.2 miles and take a left onto Santa Maria Rd. Continue for 0.2 miles and park on the shoulder. The trail begins on the right (south) side of the road.
