The Most Scenic Coastal Hikes near Los Angeles

Corral Canyon

Corral Canyon Trail

Corral Canyon resides in a nearly unblighted, 100-acre coastal stretch of Malibu, cleaved by a natural creek draining to the ocean. The main attraction here, the Sara Wan Trail, named for a former longtime member of the California Coastal Commission, is a 2.5-mile loop. It winds through a small marsh and sagebrush before heading to the top of the mesa, where hikers are practically on top of the ocean. Unobstructed views stretch from Palos Verdes to Point Dume. It's a short hike, but the climb -- or the smell of fried delights wafting up the canyon from Malibu Seafood, next to the trailhead -- might stoke your appetite.

Corral Canyon Loop begins at Sara Wan Trailhead, which is located just off PCH next to Malibu Seafood and Deli. A five-dollar fee is charged to park at the trailhead. Parking is not allowed on the north side of PCH near the trailhead.
