Hike to the M*A*S*H Filming Site (Malibu Creek State Park, California) - Friday November 1, 2013
This was one of the favorite things I did on my trip out to California. At the Malibu Creek State Park (in the Santa Monica Mountains), you can find the original location that 20th Century Fox studios used to film this very popular television show, M*A*S*H. who owned the land
between 1946 and 1974. They shot many films and television programs here including M*A*S*H between 1972 - 1983. In 2007, the state parks officials conducted "an environmentally sensitive, partial restoration of the set that cleared some of the overgrowth and made it easier to see where tents and buildings were placed during the show. The vehicle road to the helipad was restored and is now the shortest hiking trail in the park." It is a longer hike (it took around 50 minutes) and I did it in the late afternoon sun. For a fan of the television show M*A*S*H, it was a blast to be on the site where the filming took place.
