    Johnny Saakyan reviewed Solstice Canyon Loop Trail

    8 months ago

    Very beautiful and scenic trail in Malibu. Parking is really hard to find in the designated trail parking area. However, you can find “precarious parking” just 2-3 minutes from the trail entrance. If you want to park “precariously”, don’t enter the road that leads to the initial parking. Continue going up on the road you entered from the Pacific Coast Highway. Other than parking, this is a beautiful and relaxing hike. Not intense at all. The Rising Sun trail does have a pretty steep incline, but definitely doable.

    Very challenging, yet beautiful hike. I’m from Los Angeles and was visiting a couple friends in Phoenix. Trail #300 was recommended, so we decided to check I️t out. Parking is extremely difficult to find, and I️t was packed. We got there early morning in the beginning of January 2018. Weather was magnificent! The breeze was very cool with temperatures ranging 55-60 degrees. In the beginning, I️t started off with a rocky, slightly inclined trail. I️t quickly turned into rocks steps, some larger than others. About 97% of the trail was an incline. The higher you got, the slimmer the trail got. At certain vantage points of the trail, you would come across stunning views of Phoenix. As you were slowly approaching the summit, we did have to LITERALLY climb large rocks to get to the top where large crowds of people were enjoying the panoramic views of Phoenix. This hike is a very good leg and cardio workout and highly recommend I️t to adventurous people!
