Solstice Canyon is a place where one can experience nature. Native Chumash Settlers first used the canyon for food, water and shelter. Homesteader Henry Keller built a stone house in this Malibu Canyon in 1903. The trail leads to the Roberts house, which was designed in 1952 by renowned African American architect Paul Williams, and was destroyed by a fire. An arched stone courtyard garden terrace, ruins and exotic tropical plants still remain. Near the ruins, a waterfall, cascades 30 feet over sandstone rocks. The trail meanders through a lush canyon with a sweeping vista. The hike is 4 miles roundtrip with an elevation gain of 775 feet.
Meet promptly at 8:00 am at the Kanan Rd carpool lot. Bring hiking shoes, plenty of water, munchies, hat and sunscreen. Bring $$ for a fresh seafood lunch afterwards.
Directions: Ventura Freeway (101)to Kanan Rd exit.
Turn into the carpool lot across from Burger King.
