A decent hike. We did it clockwise and I would say that it’s more than moderate!

Super dope trail!

saw a lot of deer throughout my trail so keep a good lookout while you are on your hike. Decided to take on the big hill at the divide (where trail gives you the chance to go left or right) go left if you want to challenge yourself. Took me about 3 hours to finish considering my dog was not lasting through the hike. Besides that I definitely recommend this hike if you want a good challenge. Not too much tree cover besides the beginning and middle of the hike so I recommend going on a 75 degreeish day.

This hike is pretty easy compared to its rating. I did it at night, while recovering from a cold. Going uphill sick wasn’t a joy, but the views are worth it! Most of the trail is well maintained with little rock issues. Once you get to the last half a mile it becomes lose, but still walkable. If you are looking to work on your cardio or sweat out a cold, this is a good hike. I didn’t see “shortcuts,” but from the map, they look similar to the path. The part that would make this rated hard would be the uphill motion, but it’s not difficult. It just pumps your heart. This is good practice for anyone looking to strengthen their heart.

Really pretty, not very challenging, and cool rocks to climbs around in at the end!

Awesome views of Downtown LA & the SGV!

Power.
8 mile cycle each way from Marina - which makes the hike harder on your legs, otherwise the hike doesn’t burn that much. Lots of people around - less so when you break the loop to the top of Skull Rock. The small loop is one for the kids for sure.

Our group started at Beaudry Lane behind Oakmont Country Club, and we hiked to Tongva Peak and back down. 6.3 miles, 2.5 hrs., totally exhausted and happy. The views of Crescenta Valley were special all the way up, and there was enough shade here and there for rests.

This is a very nice and less talked about park in the West LA area (close to LAX!) I especially love the lake at the bottom of the hill. It was like my very own Central Park next door to me! There is also a beautiful stream w/ a small bridge next to the lake that is nice to relax at. Perfect area for picnics, bike riding, and duck gazing.

Update: I explored this trail again and discovered a beautiful Japanese garden and pond. The perfect setting for taking some nice outdoor photos, laying out on the grass, or having some zen to yourself.

This hike was a good workout! There was a lot of nice layers to the trail too. You feel like you go through a forest, then you take the trail to the top where you go through the canyons, rugged trails, and eventually the rock formations which you can climb and relax on. I especially liked the sunset trail portion of the hikes which loops all the way back to the parking lot if you take the skull rock route in the beginning.

Definitely bring a good amount of water as the hike is roughly 4.5 miles.

A lot of people, good views - but take a quieter one, or not weekends.

Wow! Best hike I have ever done! Many different trails to pick between so you can personalize it! Could have hiked for hours exploring new things!!!! It was amazing! An absolute must visit!

Short hike with a beautiful view of the coast line. There is pretty heavy mountain bike traffic on the main road.

Ran it today around 4 pm. Temp. was about 85 but with no humidity to speak of it was pleasant enough. Also, with the sun being rather low there was shade from time to time. FYI, if you do it clockwise, the first 2.5 miles or so is a steady climb.

Great hike!

I got a late start and didn’t get to finish my hike today, I will be returning however I plan to wait until it’s an overcast day as there is no shade on this trail. Trail was extremely clean ❤️

Options for a little longer home or shorter. A slight challenge but a beautiful view.

MUY BONITO Y MUY POCO TRANSITADO POR GENTE Y ESO PERMITE DISFRUTAR LA BIKE

Great hike for those looking to get into shape or simply get their feet wet in the world of hiking. The trail hits you immediately with an uphill climb but one you finish that the rest of the hills on the trail become child's play. There aren't many shade spots so a visor and sun protection is recommended for those with sensitive skin going in the day. Trail opens at 9 and parking gets filled really fast. I usually park uphill a little past the trail entrance and walk down there's no permit required.

Great close by hike with beautiful views and fun walking through the ruined house and waterfall. We started early (7:45 AM) so trail was empty. We started counter clockwise on Solstice canyon rd . We finished the loop in an hour and 15 minutes so decided to do it again this time clockwise starting with the rising sun trail which is a harder uphill. Ended up having a picnic at the ruins on our way down. Great workout and fun hike! Trail got pretty busy around 10 AM .

Love the scenery! Difficult but worth it.

Nice hike with good views of the Santa Monica and Malibu piers as well as PCH and downtown Los Angeles. The posted route features a small loop in the middle but is not a loop itself. Cool stone maze at the top overlooking Santa Monica and a beautiful view of the Malibu lagoon at the other end. Not busy at all and dog-friendly.

A beautiful park with well maintained and clearly marked trails. Parking at the trailhead is very limited and fills up fast. Rather than waiting for someone to leave we parked at a scenic overlook just up the road from the park entrance and walked the approx 3/4 mile to the trailhead.

We chose to do the loop counter-clockwise. The Solstice Canyon Trail is an old road bed, largely paved, but very degraded in sections. We saw folks pushing baby strollers up to Tropical Terrace. It's more of a walk than a hike, but it is definitely up hill all the way. It's shadey and canyony. Quite lovely. It ends at Tropical Terrace, the site of an old residence. It's a beautiful setting with lots of non native tropical vegetation. This is also the site of the waterfall, barely a trickle on our visit after our long, arid spring and summer.

We chose the Rising Sun Trail for our return. This is truly a hike. It's a trail, not an old road. After a quick and easy stream crossing there is a long slog uphill, nearly to the crest of the ridge in front of you. It will get your heart rate up, but it's very doable. Sections have steps built into the hillside. Once the crest is reached, there is a long traverse with beautiful canyon and eventual ocean views. Then the trail descends back to the trailhead.

This is a beautiful hike easily done as part of a day.

EN LO PERSONAL NO LO VEO TAN DIFICIL ... PERO SI LES PUEDO DECIR QUE YA SEA CAMINANDO, SENDERISMO CON MOCHILA DE 40 LIBRAS, CORRIENDO O EN BICICLETA ESAS 2 MILLAS TE HARAN SENTIR QUE VALEN LA PENA

We never got to try the trail because of the parking. When we got to the "parking lot," there were "No Stopping Anytime" signs. We then drove around and found that all of the street parking was only available to the residents only with a permit. We came across a resident telling a group of hikers that if they left their car in front of his house, they'd get a ticket. We asked him where we could legally park to use the trail and he pointed to a small area where there were three (3) cars parked and they'd used up ALL the legal parking spots. It seems the only way to use this trail is to walk there from an elementary school parking lot a few blocks away but I'm not sure if that's allowed. Plus, we were trying to avoid walking on the concrete around our own neighborhood: that's why we went there! Needless to say, we felt unwelcomed to use the trail by, not only the lack of parking, but also the resident who informed us that the "parking lot" was closed because of "too many break-ins." I don't think hikers are welcome by the area residents.

I absolutely love this trail!!!

This is a nice short urban trail. I started near yellow gates, that read "Not An Entrance".
Pros
- Easy Parking
- Well lined trail
- Limited # of people
- Nice views
- Good workout regardless of fitness level.
Cons
- Dirty
- Heat
- Dusty
- Short length
I highly recommend this trail for anyone. Bring enough water, hat, cooling towel, and a potato. Do not leave your potato :).
It can be steep in certain parts if you're not used to trails. Also, do not go during peak heat times if you are not accustomed to the temperature.
Enjoy!

Nice views from Tongva Peak, but the trail up there is a dull, unshaded slog up an old road grade. Taking the North loop up (ie anti clockwise) is less steep.
