Topanga State Park stretches from the Pacific Palisades to the San Fernando Valley. Topanga is thought to be an Indian term meaning “the place where the mountains meet the sea.” The area was inhabited by the Tongva Gabrielino and Chumash Indians 5,000 years ago. Today, its groves of sycamore and oak trees attract people seeking an alternative way of life.
