Directions to Topanga State Park Ed. Program
From S Topanga Canyon Blvd. turn right [if you are coming from PCH] or left [if you are coming from HWY 101] on Entrada Rd. Follow that road for 0.7 miles until Entrada splits. Keep left and drive 0.3 miles until you reach the park entrance of Trippet Ranch on the left.
Drive along that short road until you see a small ticket office which will likely be empty. Keep following that road to the parking lot and RCD Educators will be there to greet you!
