Malibu Hikes

Malibu Hikes with Ocean View

Malibu HikesPoint Dume Natural Preserve is a one mile flat hike along cliff tops directly over the ocean. Of all Malibu hikes, this is an easy one, great for whale watching, with long stairs to a secluded beach.

Corral Canyon Loop is a 2.5 mile there and back trail that leaves from the parking area next to the popular Malibu Seafood stand on the Pacific Coast Highway. The climb brings hikers to just above 500 feet with the ocean before you on your whole hike down.

La Jolla Canyon Loop is a rigorous 12 mile loop in the wilderness of Malibu’s northwest border with Oxnard, but the spectacular ocean views, maybe the best in the Santa Monica Mountains, reward you all along the way.

Malibu HikesScenic and Overlook Trails Loop is a 3 mile hike that can be stretched another half mile to provide an ocean view experience that more than delivers on its name. An incredible panorama.

Most Popular Hike

Escondido Falls Trail is a four mile out and back hike from the Pacific Coast Highway, with a good uphill to start and some steepness for those climbing next to the falls to stand on top. Best to visit after a rain when the trail has dried and the water is flowing.

Highest Point

Malibu HikesSandstone Peak is a 7 mile loop to the highest point in the Santa Monica Mountains, with breath taking terrain and vistas. The route also crosses the pinnacles at Tri-Peaks and Inspiration Point.

Tri Peaks is a 1.2 mile trek off the Sandstone Peak trail through rugged, less maintained terrain. Of all Malibu hikes, this one is rough and athletic, the reward being one more summit of matchless Pacific Ocean and top-of-the-world views.
