Solstice Canyon is a park within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in Malibu, California. Located off Corral Canyon Road from Pacific Coast Highway, the canyon runs north-to-south about a mile east of Point Dume.
Around 1865, Matthew Keller built a stone cottage in the canyon, believed to be the oldest existing stone building in Malibu. After surviving countless wildfires, the structure was finally left in ruins by the 2007 Corral Canyon Fire.
The illustrious home of Fred and Florence Roberts was built into the canyon in 1952. Paul Williams designed the house, which was later featured in an issue of Architectural Digest for its stunning blend of natural features within the design, including waterfalls, creeks and trees.
The picturesque abode was leveled by a wildfire in 1982, though its foundations have become a popular hiking destination since the park was opened in 1988.
