  • We love this hike.. we have done it about 14 times now and we think it is a gem... the path is beautiful, following a mountain stream up to the remains of a mansion that burned down in the early 1970'...  more »
  • This is a beautiful 3.4 mile hike and you can get great views of the beach and the canyon. After the rainfall this year, you get beautiful wild flowers. There's a small waterfall at the end.  more »
  • There are several trails some easier than others. Make sure to take plenty of water since most areas hiking up are in direct sun. Overall a great place to hike.  more »

  • On a bright, cloudless day Solstice Canyon is very inviting to the day adventurer. You have great views of the Pacific Ocean and cool refreshing breezes coming in when you hike past the treeline around the creek which runs adjacent to the Trail. My only gripes are, as a regular outdoorsman, is the high number of people that frequent the area, the relatively short hike, and the feeling that you're never really that far from civilization. Regardless this is a great hike that I would recommend to friends who want to get out of the city for a few hours!
  • Bring your own water for sure. BeaUtiful trail! Great inclines, nice waterfall & short distance to the beach. Parking did seem to be limited but we got lucky and got one right away. Enjoy !
  • A decent hike is to be had in Solstice Canyon. First off, parking is free but limited. I chose to take the Rising Sun Trail that leads up the ridge. It's a moderate climb that affords some nice views of the ocean. After a good half hour, it levels off and then drops into a place called Tropical Terrace where you will encounter a small waterfall and the ruins of a ranch house that once belonged to Fred Roberts and his wife Florence. The Solstice Canyon trail which is lined by some beautiful oak trees and runs along a creek at the bottom of the canyon takes you back to the parking lot. Along the way, you will see another ruin of a stone house that in the 80s succumbed to one of the many fires in the region.
  • If you're looking for an easy hike to a waterfall, this is definitly one of those. However, once you get to the first waterfall, you can do a little Rock climbing and see the 6 smaller Waterfalls that hide behind the stream. Thus would make your hike much harder, but the views are definitly worth it.
  • It's a breathtaking view atop all mountain tops. Waterfalls and nature make excersicing a breeze
