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

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

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.

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

Great trail even if you don't go all the way. Parking direction from app are spot on. As mentioned in another review there is a tree grove at 5 miles (great place for lunch), and bring plenty of water, it can be warm in the sun. Around 5.5 to turn around at 6.2 are a series of really neat rock formations you can climb around and on. Great views.

Great trail and view! Could be more green.

This is one of my go-to weekend hikes. It gains a lot of elevation quickly, but that means some pretty stellar ocean views and isn't too long. Watch out for poison oak and wear sun protective gear.

The view was wonderful! Loved being in the canyon and seeing yuccas & other wild flowers. The trails are quite narrow with a lot of overgrowth. There were long branch like reeds, that I call slappers, to combat on the trail. So watch out for those, ticks & spiderwebs(especially in the morning).

Very nice hike. Lots of beautiful views!! Did it on a Tuesday morning. There was nobody.

Great hike with awesome views!

Started 8:am. Parking directions correct and right at trailhead. Ascent is 2.9 mi. There was only one tree grove ~5.0 mi in. Excellent trails >15’ width.

Very cool stopping point is Corral Caves. Climb into one of the caves for lunch . Nothing at end point of trail.

Definitely need 3 liter of water (I make hibiscus tea, refreshing mint tea / Little caffeine, with lots of ice) and hat.

Coastal weather gorgeous.

Saw no snakes. Lots of women and men on trails. All friendly.

very narrow path overgrown with tall wildflowers. not a great experience for people who are allergic to bees or just don't appreciate darting through a mile or two of bees in the path. sad face - did think it had a nice view I did not stop to see - wish the path were wider and cleared.

The parking is 8$ but you can also find parking on the side street. it’s safer if you park your car inside. Amazing view! The hike is easy but you get a good workout. I definitely recommend this hike if you want a great ocean view

This was the perfect length hike for a night after work. The only con is that it is $8 for parking. The trail begins very steep and continues that way for the first .8 of the hike. After you reach the top, it stars going back down at a pretty low incline. The views are breath taking of the ocean and I recommend taking the pictures on the way up rather than the way down. Also, the trail is unmarked so be sure to check out the map ahead of time! Happy Trails!

Excellent trail. Start out going counter clockwise and you will end the hike with beautiful ocean views. There are some homeless folks living out in the canyon. We had a shoeless woman pop out from behind a bush on the trail and asked if we had a light Not too big of a deal, but you need to be careful if you are out hiking alone. Other than that, it is a beautiful trail with a lot of ocean views at the end. Be sure to get fish and chips at Malibu Seafood when you are done. They are possibly better than the trail itself.

Very good but has multiple trails. This app was very helpful

Easy relaxed hike with pleasant views. Going anti-clockwise it the final section that's most interesting.

Beautiful trail with lots of wild plants to look at. Had I had my phone with me and my handy dandy trail app I might have known better where I was and where the descent would lead me. Thinking I was lost l retraced my route. Take time to check out the stand of trees near the chimney. Had I not retraced I would not have taken the time to smell the sage.

Great hike. Followed the Rising Sun Trail to the Tropical Terrace. Views of the ocean were absolutely stunning. Loved learning about the history of the fires along the way. Seeing the waterfall was an added bonus. Hike was exactly what I hoped it would be.

Definitely a good hike for beginners. Great ocean view and fairly easy hike. There’s a bit inclination toward the middle of the hike and it can be a bit slippery going downhill but majority of the hike is pretty easy and mainly a nice walk by the beach

Great view but the hiking trails need work.

Very beautiful! Never saw another person on the trail. Just be careful, the day we went there were thousands of little flies that would land on us and unfortunately quite a few got stuck to our sweaty bodies.

We couldn't finish the trail because we started too late; however the trail is nice and notas bad as I thought in regards to the plants. I recommend it for children. The view is really nice and the access really easy.
