I love to take a day away from the city and hike the Escondido Canyon Trail in Malibu. The path is about four miles and takes most hikers around two hours to complete. The beginning of the trail passes gorgeous Malibu mansions then continues on to the three Escondido waterfalls. Parts of the trail can be steep and require some scrambling, so hikers should wear proper shoes and be prepared for a moderately difficult path. However, the stunning views make this hike worth the effort.
