Malibu Creek State Park

Located 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles, Malibu Creek State Park used to be a ranch owned by Fox movie studios where TV shows and movies like M*A*S*H, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and King Kong were filmed.

Here are some views of the creek's beautiful grassland valley:

Here is a map with the entrance to the park labeled:
