Top of Reseda to Trippet
Starting at the end of “Reseda Blvd.” -off Freeway 101- it’s a very accessible and popular trailhead.
For once we are not starting on the ocean but at the other side of Topanga SP, accessible via Freeway 101, exit “Reseda”. We prefer to rotate trailhead locations so that you’ll get a good mix of great trails without running anything twice. This loop is 12 miles and a figure eight with an extra little loop at the start/beginning.
ATTENTION FOR NEWER RUNNERS: We mark with white flour arrows, we always start marking with half arrows but once we hit a certain location again (like in a figure 8) we switch to a regular double arrow.
At the gate on the start we take the single track on our right hand and run the fireroad that takes us to the Hub (with outhouse), from there we take Eagle Springs road to Trippet Ranch with bathrooms and potable water. Then we’ll connect with the Mush Trail back to Eagle Rock, then drop down on the very beautiful Garapito Trail. Once back on the Fire road we take the Bent Arrow Trail back to Mulholland where we turn left and which brings us back to the trailhead at the end of Reseda Blvd.
Park “before” the yellow line: that’s where it’s FREE parking.
(Park close to trail head behind the yellow line: that’s where you pay a State Park FEE.)
