You won’t find solitude on this very popular and easily accessible hike. But a year- round creek up a shady canyon for pooch combined with sweeping views of the Pacific along the sundrenched ridge is worth sharing the trail with four-legged locals and their human companions. The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area encompasses almost 160,000 acres laced with 500 miles of trails. The National Park Service in cooperation with several other government agencies administers the recreation area. The Chumash Indians inhabited Solstice Canyon long before the arrival of settlers and cattle ranchers.
