Hiking LA: Malibu Canyon Photo Essay

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.


In the next several weeks, LAist will embark on a series of hikes and present to you an ambitious 8-part photo essay (not as majestic as BBC's Planet Earth). This is the first one.

As always, LAist encourages you to get out and take advantage of and experience the beautiful landscape of Southern California. Most of us forget that we are fortunate to live in such a diverse and ecologically unique locale that offers breathtaking sites at spectacular heights -- hike LA!

Photos continue after the jump.
