Trail to The McCain Ranch/Map
I have been asked many times how to get to get the
location of the McCain Ranch which was located at Malibu Creek State Park.
Dennis, a fan of The Rifleman had asked me that
question recently as many other fans.
Although I had been there years ago, I really couldn't
tell him how to find this location.
The only thing I remembered was
that the jeep from Mash was somewhere near the location.

map for a larger view of the area)
Dennis did find it on his own with the help of Google
Earth. He sent this map and the directions to me so other fans like you can
also find the location of The McCain Ranch.
walking that trail that I mapped out, look for the tree trunk laying down to the
right. If you sit on that trunk and look north west, you'll be facing straight
on at the McCain ranch property.
another way to reach The McCain Ranch.....
The path is easy from the parking lot as he
made an indication here.
The MASH set is almost at the far
north end of the park- a 2 mile or so trek. You can park closer to it from entering from the Malibu Lake side.
Take 101 freeway to Agoura, exit Kanan Road west toward the beach.
A mile or so, turn left on Cornell Rd. After
a few miles, the street name changes to Lake Vista Drive.
When you reach Crags Drive, turn left. Park as close
as you can to the park entrance.
The distance to the MASH set is a lot shorter.
Dennis stated that he will going back soon
to do more detail photos and angles.
Let's hope Dennis will also share
these with us! Thanks Dennis!Gone But Not Forgotten-pg3
