Time Out says

With dramatic gorges, open pastures, lush forests, hidden pools and jagged peaks, Malibu Creek is simply one of the most stunning spots in Southern California. The Santa Monica Mountains space is filled with scenic trails and, since this is still L.A., a bit of silver screen history; you can spot remnants of the M*A*S*H set and splash in the rock pool that was featured in Planet of the Apes.

The park is open for day use following the Woolsey Fire, though the campground remains closed. If you visit during a wet winter or spring, you’ll find lush, green grass blanketing the floor of the park, but do note that otherwise the fire has left massive portions of the mountain park completely blackened and charred.
