Solstice Canyon

Abbie and I got to go on a hike this weekend which hasn't happened in almost a year due to Abbie's poor knees...
but she mustered up the courage to try this 6.3-mile somewhat strenuous hike in Malibu. And with the views and beauty, I would say it was well worth it, even if her knees are sore this week...

To get to Solstice Canyon, you take the 101W to Kanan. Go south to the PCH and turn Left. About 3 miles later, you will turn Left on Corral Canyon and the entrance to the park is about .3 miles on your left. Then you can go into the park about .3 miles to park (the parking lot was full, so we parked just outside the park and walked in). We followed the Solstice Canyon Trail to the Sostomo Trail/Deer Valley Loop, crossed the creek a few times, and saw a spectacular ocean view.

On the way back we also saw the ruins of Roberts Ranch House, a beautiful waterfall, and a shrine.
