About this Coffee
- Depending on where you're coming from within Los Angeles, there may be various routes you can take to get to the trailhead. Consider taking the US-101 North towards Ventura and take the exit for CA-27 South / Topanga Canyon Boulevard. Stay on Topanga Canyon Boulevard for 7.8 miles and take a right on Entrada Road. Be sure to follow the road signs leading to the parking lot at Trippet Ranch and park your car. If the lot is full or you don't want to pay the fee, there's ample parking along Entrada Road. Be sure to check for "No Parking" signs to ensure you don't get towed while on the hike.
- NOTE: Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on any trails or fire roads within Topanga State Park so you'll need to leave your furry hiking companion back at home.
- TIP: There are multiple routes one can get to Santa Ynez Falls and the route below is from Trippet Ranch in Topanga State Park and not from the Pacific Palisades. Also, depending on the time of year you hike the trail, Santa Ynez Falls may not have much water flowing through the canyon.
- Head to the south east side of the parking lot and you'll see the large brown sign noting "Trippet Ranch Trailhead". There will be a long list of sights available to see in the park and Eagle Rock will be the first on this list.
- Follow this short trail west until you reach the intersection with East Topanga Fire Road and turn left, heading north.
- When you reach the intersection for Santa Ynez Canyon Trail, veer right heading downhill into Quarry Canyon.
- You'll descend for approximately 1.5 miles before you hit a wood column denoting directions to Highlands, Trippet Ranch and the waterfall. Follow the arrow towards the waterfall.
- A sign will follow immediately with the following note: "not a through trail -- warning not maintained". Directly after this sign a Y-intersection will appear and you'll want to take the trail veering left or directing north west.
- Two more signs directing you will pop up along the route towards the waterfall. The first directing you with an arrow to follow the "trail".
- A short distance aheads, a waterfall sign with an arrow and hikers icon near the mouth of a small canyon will lead you a short distance ahead to the Santa Ynez Falls.
- There is a climbing rope is present if you'd like to explore the area above the waterfall. Depending on the amount of water, you may not be able to get to the rope without getting a little wet so keep that in mind when venturing all the way into the canyon.
- When you're finished, return the way you came and head back to Trippet Ranch.
