7of the Best Mountain Bike Trails in Los Angeles

TOPANGA CREEK OUTPOST LOOP, TOPANGA STATE PARK

Mountain bike at Topanga State Park

  • Distance from Downtown L.A.: 27 miles
  • Difficulty: Intermediate

This wide-open loop, much of which is on fire roads, begins at the Topanga Creek Outpost. You’ll climb moderate singletrack on the Deer Hill trail, which opens up into a meadow carpeted with wildflowers during the springtime. The highlight is the Mulholland Drive Fire Road, which boasts awe-inspiring views of the San Fernando Valley and the Pacific Ocean, not to mention the gorgeous red canyons of Topanga State Park. Don’t let your guard down: the crux of the route is a technical, rocky waterfall section near the end.
