Helpful staff. Good parking and toilet facilities. Excellent and well maintained pathways.
Try not to be 'spoon fed' dudes and follow the signs like sheep. Use some initiative and a bit of adventure. Read and use a good map and take a compass.
Be wise and Be Safe

The park has an easy & accessible parking lot, where they have an electronic meter to pay via credit card. The hikes & walking paths are smooth & well worn. You can hike on flat paths or some with hills. Plenty of people on the paths, but never feels crowded.

I went on a weekday morning, so there was minimal information available at the park. The trails seem to be well used, but are very poorly marked, and the sign in the parking area was also not clear. That said, it was a nice area, and I did go for a strenuous hike up one of the hills without getting totally lost. Parking was easy and the cold soda machine a welcome sight after 2 hours of hiking.

My family are huge fans of the TV show M*A*S*H and so my husband and I could not take a trip to California without making a trip to see the where the show filmed its outdoor scenes. We had a map in hand and also asked the man in the booth when we drove into the park for any helpful tips getting to the site. With all that we have to say that the trail out the old tv set was not well marked. We were almost ready to give up when we ran into a woman who told us it was about 10 mins further down the path. What fun once we finally got there. They have a few old tattered signs, an old hospital truck, a space you can picnic at where the mess tent once stood and a replica of the city signs that stood outside of the Swamp in the show. It was so much smaller than it looks on TV but we really enjoyed just walking around this space and remembering some of our favorite episodes that were filmed in that very location. It is a long hike and not a super easy one. It was hot the day we went and we were glad we had water. We saw very few people the day we went which we liked. For true M*A*S*H fans I think it is worth the hike and for those that like to hike, it is a gorgeous park. I would go back but I most certainly will be sure to carry a map.
