Cool post-brunch hiking trails in Malibu?

I am having brunch at Geoffrey's in Malibu and would love suggestions for a cool hike/walking trail around that area for afterwards. Nothing too strenuous; something more casual and low-key with ocean views!

    The first suggestion that came to mind was Corral Canyon Park.Corral Canyon ParkIt's right by the beach and has a 2.5 mile loop. I think you have to pay $5 for parking here. I haven't hiked here in many years but I remember it being nice and easy

    Solstice Canyon is a chill hike that goes into the ruins of an old mansion.

    Solstice CanyonThere's little waterfall and stream behind the mansion. A fun thing people post online is trying to find a hidden statue of the Virgin Mary. I've gone here many times and have not been able to find the statue. If you go up the hills (a little bit more strenuous than through the valley) to get to the mansion you won't get shade, but you'll get some ocean views. You'll find maps at the nature center by the parking lot.

    A really fun short hike is the Grotto Hike trail that starts at Circle X Ranch.

    Circle X RanchThere will be just a little bit of boulder hopping at the very end if you go when the stream isn't dry, otherwise it's an easy hike. Climbing into the grotto is a bit adventurous and you have to look around a little bit to find the crack to get in, but that's part of the fun. The only down side to it is that you have to drive a bit off away from PCH to get there.

    Temescal Canyon Park is a popular place too. Parking can be a little challenging there sometimes.

    Two really cool and easy ones:

    Point Dume State Beach... right on the water. Nice little jaunt uphill and back down to see some views along the water: http://www.hikespeak.com/trails/point-dume-malibu/

    The other is inland more, no water views, but really fun: http://www.daytrippen.com/paramount-ranch-santa-monica-mountains.html
