8 Best Malibu Hikes You Cannot Miss


The never-ending sunshine, tall palm trees, and unique dry deserts of Southern California make it a beautiful place to visit, and of course, the beaches are on just about everyone’s bucket list.

Malibu, CA, is well-known for its beach culture and excellent surfing, but you might be surprised to know Malibu is also home to some of the best hiking in Southern California.

Escondido Canyon Trail to Escondido Falls

To get to the official trailhead, you have to walk through Winding Way Road, past many beautiful Malibu mansions, until you get to the sign marking the trailhead.

Temescal Canyon Trail

Temescal Canyon Trail offers stunning ocean views and views of Malibu, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles, waterfalls, and a beautiful landscape of wildflowers in the season.

Los Liones Trail to Parker Mesa Overlook

A little bit over 1 mile into the hike, you will come to a bench with 180 degrees Pacific Ocean views. A lovely spot for a rest, a drink of water.

Solstice Canyon Loop Trail

It’s definitely one of the more interesting hikes in Malibu. A mostly shaded canyon hike, you can choose your style with this one.
