A nice medium level hike with a great reward at the end in the large rock formations you can climb on. Amazing view of Topanga canyon and the ocean

Rough climb at the beginning leads to a beautiful view from the rock at the peak.

I did this hike before the fires and really loved it

Amazing hike but the beginning uphill part is a lot longer than everyone below states. The whole out portion is majority uphill. Incredible views at the end made it worth it. It also averages at about 6 miles from the starting point this sets you at just FYI. We took a couple side routes to look out points that contributed to that

Came here on Dec 30th around 11:30am and it was easy to find parking on the residential area. Maybe it was because of the holidays that parking was easy to find. The trail was easy to find. It was a clear paved path the entire way up and down. You start off with a slight incline and keep working your way up. The incline is nothing too crazy anyone can do it, just keep at your steady pace and breathe. The trail will continue to incline and about .5 miles in flattens out. The view at the top is beautiful and coming back down you get the entire city and ocean view. Definitely would come back again!

The trail is closed :(. Due to fire damage!

This trail is closed due to the Woolsey Fire. Theres a pretty beach across the street that I went to instead.

I came on dec 19, 2018, it was a Wednesday so not many people were around. Parking was relatively easy but I can imagine it hard during weekends (the starting point is in a fancy residential
area on a uphill road, and you can only park alone the street in certain area.)


The first 1/4 of the rout could be a little bit intense for people who haven’t worked out much, because it started uphill right away and could be steep sometimes. Fortunately, the trail was wide and no steps or obstacles, and there were a few stopping points for photos and resting.

After has its quite easy, and you would ready the midpoint (the tip). It had a great view of LA and oceans, and two benches!! (I thought that was rare.)

This is a fantastic choice because one can see mountains, skylines, and ocean all at once. Also there’s a diversity of Californian native plants and various birds chirping and hopping around. Highly recommended!

Good Trail, usually pretty quiet and not a lot of people. Beautiful rock formation at the end plus slight ocean views on a clear day

Note : This trail is temporarily closed due to the fire. I didn't know and came here on Dec 9th, 2018. Signs outside the gate tell you that it's hazardous.

Burned our.

Nice easy hike on a quiet Sunday. Great if you like a little bit of history (see the ruins) and small waterfalls.

Moderate climb to a steady hike. Quite busy. Go early!

Beautiful hike with shade, views, and a range of terrain and scenery. Great for a short hike on a lazy day to build an appetite.

Short moderate hike only about 2 1/2 miles but the ocean views were amazing! It’s a loop trail with a nice seafood restaurant at the start/end of the hike

nice hike it has couple small waterfalls, around 1 miles is uphill and the rest is easy

BEAUTIFUL MALIBU hike that has scenic, ocean coastal views. The patches of yellow dandelion mazes while heading up the trail was gorgeous too. I came here with a buddy of mine on Saturday afternoon around 4pm and it wasn't crowded at all. The trek is 2.5 long so very doable and after your workout I highly recommend eating at the Malibu Seafood shack at the bottom.

Parking: There is plenty of parking on the side of the PCH or there is also a small paid lot at the head of the trail that is around $5.

Moderate hike with rewarding 360 views. Very cool caves to take a nap and or meditate. Read signs when parking, the locals will guide you via signs. I will be back, no dogs allowed is the only bummer but understood.

Nice hike! It had nice views, and you felt like you were getting a good workout as well! Recommend!

I wish it would be longer but it’s still a nice stroll. Good place to get away and clear your head.

Very accessible, but not overwhelmingly great. Didn't feel like I was very removed from LA. Residential area and decent amount of people for a Tuesday afternoon.

Excelente en un dia soleado ya que hay bastante sombra durante casi todo el camino .. solo un consejo lleven calzado apto para el terreno al llegar a la cascada pueden escalar un poco ... ahorita no hay agua pero aun asi vale la pena caminar por aqui el recorrido es muy facil ...

Great hike!

Steady incline and amazing views of the ocean! Not very shaded but good for an overcast day

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 .

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.

Not too bad, perfect for those who don’t hike much or want something quick.
