Please note that portions of this trail were closed as private property. The trail and peak are now reported to have been reopened. This hike first descends into Upper Solstice Canyon where the pleasant, mostly shaded trail follows a seasonal creek bed. As the trail begins to rise out of the canyon, the views get progressively more spectacular. First, lovely folded green hills emerge, followed by large sandstone formations in the distance. As you gain elevation, ocean views become more prominent. On a clear day, you can see most of the Channel Islands, Catalina, and the Santa Monica coastline. Once over the crest, seemingly endless layers of mountains abound in an almost 360 degree panorama, including views down into Malibu Canyon and beyond.

Great hike!

Cool rocks to climb on at the start of the trail. It’s downhill to the peak, so it’s all uphill on the way back. Did it last June, and it was HOT with no shade. Recommended for early in the morning or cooler times of year.

Mesa Peak is now part of the Backbone Trail and is no longer blocked off by any gates. Did this from the bottom to the top with zero gates, zero signs. Great trail, can be a bit brutal in full sun with only one small grove of trees.

A nice hike with lovely views. It's open but the fence is of course there making the loop impossible. Go left at the top instead of towards the gate and you can get a good view of the ocean and into the canyon.
