Tapia Park



Tapia Park is one of the most popular portals into Malibu Creek State Park. Located south of the main entrance to Malibu Creek State Park on the west side of Las Virgenes Road, Tapia Park offers hiking, biking, and equestrian trails, including access to the Backbone Trail. Malibu Creek flows through the park. An abundance of large oak trees and gentle creek side terrain make Tapia Park a favorite picnic area.

The Salvation Army operates a youth camp for children ages 7 to 16 in the Santa Monica Mountains, south and east of Malibu Creek State Park and west of Tapia Park. Brents Mountain is immediately to the west of the camp. The purpose of the camp is to serve children from low-income families and to meet their physical, social, and spiritual needs.
