Map and Site Information: Temescal Gateway Park

Temescal Gateway

Temescal Gateway Park and the Temescal Canyon Conference and Retreat Center encompass 141 acres of oak and sycamore canyons, ridge top views, and access to miles of trails in Topanga State Park, Will Rogers State Historic Park, and the 20,000-acre "Big Wild." The popular loop trail starts adjacent to the year-round Temescal Creek and travels along the canyon ridge, offering spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Park amenities include easy to moderate trails, picnic tables and grassy areas, restrooms, a camp store, meeting rooms, an auditorium, and classrooms.

The Temescal Canyon Conference and Retreat Center provides overnight accommodations for up to 100 people, and the architecturally distinctive Temescal Dining Hall serves as a beautiful location for events of all kinds.

The park is accessible by both Los Angeles Metro bus and the Santa Monica Blue Bus routes.
