I began my hike at Trippet Ranch. This is a nice area but maybe a tad busy. The trails I hiked included Musch Trail, Eagle Springs Fire Road, East Topanga Fire Road and the Nature Trail near the parking lot – a total of about six miles. The highlight was Eagle Rock, a massive sandstone rock which can be explored at the top.
Nice meadow and mountain views
On zoom, I was told this formation is called Cathedral Rock.
Ancient Face, Immortalized
I approach Eagle Rock. The boulder at the base does look like an eagle’s head. It looks more like an eagle than anything else on the rock.
There are many little caves pitting the giant rock. I thought about how cool it would be if one could only climb out to them.
I make it out to a cave, just as I had hoped.
Heading down the trail, one last look at Eagle Rock.
