Solstice Canyon is a park within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in Malibu, California. Located off Corral Canyon Road from Pacific Coast Highway, the canyon runs north-to-south about a mile east of Point Dume. The park opened on June 20, 1988 and was created out of land owned by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. Before becoming a park, the land was known as Roberts Ranch and, from 1961 to 1973, hosted a space research facility.
In 2003, a Chumash grave site was discovered within the park.

  • Gorgeous trail. Go early before it gets too hot. Not much shade. Views of the ocean, green hills, what more could you want? There is a long portion of the trail that is a steep incline but it's totally worth it. I've also done a few photo sessions here as a photographer. Love it!
  • Clean and clear paths. Let's do our part to help maintain it this way! Not too bad of a trail, it's relatively short. Perfect for a warm up! Afterwards, it's all up to you! Enjoy ⛰️❤️🔥
