Address: 3455 Solstice Canyon Rd, Malibu, CA
An effortless, pastoral, Malibu hike with a waterfall & two burnt down relic homes as its main attractions.
From the parking lot to the waterfall (the turnaround point), it’s just about 30 minutes or 1.3 miles. Halfway up the trail you’ll cross a small creek-bridge and see the charred remains of the Keller House – the oldest home in Malibu which burnt down in 2007. Then, a little further up the trail you’ll arrive at Tropical Terrace – the ruins of the “Roberts Home” – a Paul Revere Williams designed home that was lost in a 1982 fire.
* Find the stairs behind the “Roberts Home” to see the little waterfall.
This hike is great for families, dogs, joggers, nature enthusiasts, mountain bikers, photographers, and anyone else who enjoys a scenic walk outdoors.
While in the area, consider checking out the Malibu Country Mart, Big Dume Beach, Malibu Bluffs Park, Malibu Pier, and Paradise Cove.
