Explore Pacific Coast, The Pacific and more!

A short but beautiful hike in the Charmlee Wilderness Park, a 530 acre park on the coastal bluffs in Malibu. Beautiful grassy meadows, coastal scrub, and live oak are all highlights in this park, which also has some historic ranch ruins and a great little nature center on coastal California wildlife. There are plenty of trail options in this park, ranging from easy to moderate, as well as some ranger-led hikes. Don't overlook Charmlee! *** There is a day-use fee to park at Charmlee…

Charmlee Wilderness Park in Malibu gives the inland wildflower show a run for its money with the added bonus of amazing Pacific coast views, too.

Anza-Borrego State Park, San Diego, CA  Catch one heck of a spring show is on view at Anza-Borrego, California’s largest state park.
