Charmlee Wilderness Park

This park has some hiking trails way up on the bluffs above the ocean in Malibu.  You are actually above the beaches of La Piedra and El Pescador…. way above.   The park is on Encinal Canyon Road and parking in the dirt lot is $4.  The trails are largely uncovered, so unless you go in the early morning when there is usually cloud cover, bring sun protection and a hat and dress like you were going for a desert hike because these trails get hot!  I went in the late afternoon and what a cooker!  Even in shorts and a t shirt.  Still, a pretty nice place to hike and the cliff views of the Malibu area are totally worth it.
