Escondido Canyon Trail and Waterfalls – Malibu, CA

After lunch at Geoffrey’s, it was time to work off a few calories on the Escondido Canyon Trail.   The trail head is actually 1 mile up the hill from the parking lot; however you will not mind the astonishing views of multi million dollar homes and the Malibu coastline.   I highly recommend this hike after it has recently rained.  The sky was so clear you could see all the way to Palos Verdes.   It will also ensure that the waterfalls are at their best. 

A very important note about the hike – If you are going to the water falls, make sure you go left at the first T, and go upstream (makes sense, right?).   Also, when you get to the first waterfall, don’t think you’re finished.   There are more falls up a rather steep mini-climb (well worth it).

The trail is very well maintained.  At about 4.2 miles you should give yourself about 2 hours to fully enjoy the park.  Difficulty wise it wasn’t too bad.  I actually thought the 1 mile hike up the road to the trailhead was the most strenuous.  I look forward to coming back again soon!
