Description

From the parking area, this trail is the major connection to the Backbone Trail. It is a pleasant loop, and can also be used to reach Inspiration Point, a beautiful lookout.

Free parking is available in the residential area, or you can park inside Will Rogers Park for $12 (as of Sept 2015).

Take a left from the main Will Rogers building up the Inspiration Point Loop Trail. There is a junction around mile one - take a right and continue up to Inspiration Point.

From there, just follow the trail until you reach Inspiration Point. Take lots of pictures!

The Rivas Canyon trailhead at Will Rogers isn't obvious. Walk past the park office, tennis court, and bridge to go down the paved path straight ahead.
