Don't allow phrases like "May Gray" or "June Gloom" to defer you from visiting the California coast during these months of the year. Springtime in Malibu is picturesque, with flowers abloom across the Malibu hills. During our recent vacation we hiked Solstice Canyon, a trail system that offers hiking options for a variety of fitness levels. After soaking in some relaxation at the Malibu Beach Inn, we wanted to get out in nature and have an adventure. The trailhead is only a 5 minute drive from town, and the views from the top are worth every step.
