Best strange history hike
In the early 1930th LA was home to a secret Nazi compound, Murphy Ranch, which plotted world domination from the peaceful brushlands of what is now Rustic Canyon. One story goes that a wealthy Pasadena thumbtack heiress and her equally gullible husband were manipulated into believing that the US soon would fall into anarchy and destruction at the hands of the Germans. Rather than be a part of the losing term, the caple took the advise of a suspicious man knowing as Herr Schmidt and invested money building a higgen enclave to assist the the dastardly Nazis. The structure. Now in ruins, is covered in Graffity, hunkers deep down in the canyon 4 mi.FBI rained this mysterious lair in 1941. Rustic Canyon, Sullivan Radge Fire Road, Pacific Palisades.
