Topanga Canyon (Santa Monica Mountains)
Topanga is a small city in the Santa Monica Mountains, bounded on three sides by the Topanga Canyon State Park and halfway between Malibu and the San Fernando Valley; just a short car ride to the city of Santa Monica. The perfect destination for those that want to enjoy all what Los Angeles has to offer and still be away of it all!
The range extends approximately 40 mi (64 km) east-west from the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles to Point Mugu in Ventura County. The southern mountains form a barrier between the San Fernando Valley and the Los Angeles Basin, separating "the Valley" on the north and west-central Los Angeles on the south; and the northern mountains separate the Conejo Valley from Malibu. The Santa Monica Mountains are parallel to Santa Susana Mountains, which are located directly north of the mountains across the San Fernando Valley.
