Backbone Trail - Betty Rogers is a spur trail which connects to the Inspiration Point Loop Trail.

The Inspiration Point Loop Trail is a loop through Will Rogers State Park that connects to numerous trails, including segments of the Backbone Trail System. The trail is lined with eucalyptus trees and ascends to an overlook with benches and trash receptacles. The overlook, known as Inspiration Point, provides a spectacular panoramic view out over Los Angeles.

Inspiration Point Loop Trail can be accessed from short trails departing from the polo field at Will Rogers State Historic Park. From the PCH, head inland on Chautauqua Blvd (approximately 1 mile north of the Santa Monica pier). After 1 mile turn right onto Sunset Blvd. Park entrance will be on left via Will Rogers State Park Road.
