Hiking trails and picnic areas in Malibu Creek State Park have reopened for the first time since November's Woolsey Fire swept through the Santa Monica Mountains. Visitors, who are asked to stay on trails and tread lightly, should expect to see burned landscapes and fire damage to parts of the “MASH” TV site and other areas.
The park reopened Tuesday but the campground remains closed until further notice. Malibu Creek lost landmark buildings in the fire, including the Sepulveda Adobe, built in 1863, and the one-time Ronald Reagan ranch.
Most campgrounds in the area, however, remain closed, particularly at Sycamore Canyon and Leo Carrillo State Park. Malibu Creek’s campground had been closed since June because of a homicide unrelated to the fire.
