We rented a house that had a beautiful partial view of Solstice Canyon and a full view of the Pacific Ocean from the front of the house.
I had a great time here with my brother and his girlfriend. We parked at the second larger parking lot closer to the trailhead. We went on the solstice canyon trail up to robert's ranch house. The ruins of the house were interesting and the waterfall was kind of just a drippy puddle. Still enjoyed it. We took the rising... 更多
We went hiking in the afternoon which was really nice (solstice canyon trail). The views are amazing and we saw several types of wildlife (birds, bees, deer, etc.). The hike we took wasn't too difficult and had some historical structures to view on the way to a waterfall (that we pretty much dry due to the drought). There were a... 更多
My sister and I did the main trail, part of the extended portion, and the Rising Sun trail. The views were great and the first half of the hike was very easy going. The Rising Sun trail was the hardest of the ones we hiked, but it was still manageable for us. I highly recommend this park.

We then proceeded on the rising sun trail which was somewhat demanding (not for small kids or those not in shape). Once you get to top there is a great view... 更多
In our group of 4 were 2 marathon runners who were going to run the LA Marathon the next day so they didn't want to take a long hike. This is a very easy hike, in fact, most of it is paved so lots of people were pushing strollers. The waterfall at the end was very disappointing.
The basic hike to the waterfall is moderately flat and shaded. The waterfall is small but it runs year around (very rare find) and is pretty although the railing around it is a little unsightly. There are connecting trails that go up the canyon sides so you can hike for quite a while. Those are steeper and more open. If... 更多
You can experience short or long hikes throughout the canyons of Malibu. You can see the water and the beach from many vantage points.
I visited Solstice Canyon on the last day of 2015. Fortunately, we had blue skies and thus amazing views. The hike itself was great too, hardly any people around and two parking lots nearby.
