“Great trail near Malibu”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We spent a month in Malibu with a daughter of 8 years and did come here for shorter hikes. Great views, different trails paved ranging to climbing almost. Interesting history, free parking. The Solstice canyon has everything needed even sun when the beach was covered with clouds( June gloom)'.

“Great hike for many levels”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This Solstice canyon hike has everything, from flat paved to brutal stone stairs up and down the steep sides. You can pick and choose your adventure from the trails. The history of the canyon is interesting, with the structures and ruins, and the scenery is beautiful.

“Beautiful hiking spot easy lower trail..”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We spent a whole day hiking Solstice canyon, even though its not a very long trail we took hours because there is so much to stop and look at, all the different types of insects, plants, salamanders and snakes kept the kids busy spotting and admiring for most of the time, then we got to the Roberts House and climbed further on to see the waterfall and explore a bit more to the "chapel" all burned areas, seeming ruins in the forest...really a great easy way to get some western adventure.

“Great hiking spot w/interesting history.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Very popular hiking spot located off Corral Canyon Road, turn off at the Union 76 station. There is parking in the park, however it tends to fill up fast on the weekends. There are a couple of different hiking routes of varying difficulty with a lovely creek and small waterfall at the end of the easier hike.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

On the last day of our trip we hiked up the Solstice trail and back the rising sun trail. Solstice is flat and easy, rising sun is a moderate climb with spectacular views. There is free parking and maps available in the inner parking lot. There is also a restroom at the trailhead. Nice way to spend a few hours.
