Solstice Canyon Trail

Solstice Canyon Trail

Solstice Canyon options for easy, moderate, or strenuous hikes for dogs provided they are kept on leash. Visitors can enjoy a shady stroll along the Solstice Canyon Trail, or a more challenging climb up the Rising Sun Trail.

This site has one of the only year-round waterfalls in the mountains. Full of history dating back to the early 20th century, visitors can take an easy hike for a couple of miles, or a strenuous hike over six miles.

While enjoying a gentle hike to the waterfall you will pass remains of the Keller House, a stone hunting cabin built over one hundred years ago, and significantly damaged by fire in 2007. Upon arriving at the Solstice waterfall, you will find the stone and brick ruins of The Roberts Ranch house designed by architect Paul Revere Williams, the first African American member of the American Institute of Architects.

Proximity to the beach makes this an extremely popular destination on weekends. With limited parking, carpooling is strongly encouraged. Picnic areas are also available in the park.

Dogs are allowed but must remain on a leash, not to exceed six feet, at all times.
