If you want to go on a more adventurous hike with mesmerizing views, then you must visit the Solstice Canyon. This canyon is located in Malibu, around 29 miles away from Van Nuys. This place is pawfect for you and your pup if you want some extra exercise while enjoying some breathtaking scenes of the ocean. Your dog has to be on leash when you're visiting, though. Make sure you bring lots of water for you and your pup, and poop bags, too. The path is not fully shaded, so this hike can be a lot more difficult in the summer. Try visiting when it's not too hot for the most comfortable experience.
