Big Topanga purchase is coming...


Mountain Park Agency Seeks to Buy another 225 acres of the Topanga Summit to Summit trail---would virtually complete ring of parkland surrounding the iconic canyon on L.A.’s Wild Side


Topanga, Summit-to-Summit/Henry Ridge Motorway Parcel Acquisition to include APNs 2080-013-001, 003, 007 and 008; and 4436-023-002, unincorporated County of Los Angeles. [Map ] [Staff Report]   MRCA 3/14/2012

The Summit to Summit motorway is a wide dirt road with virtually no houses that separates Topanga canyon from the San Fernando Valley. Due to its width, the road is a favorite of mountain bikers.
