Escondido Falls, Malibu, CA
When Escondido Falls is flowing strong, it is flat out one of the finest waterfalls around Los Angeles.
This 3.8-mile round trip hike begins with 0.75 miles uphill along Winding Way, a paved road that passes extravagant Malibu residences. Do not let the blacktop deter you. The waterfall is well worth the unconventional start. After gaining 200 feet, the road heads downhill and you will arrive at a wooded park that is open for everyone to enjoy, Escondido Canyon Park.
