A coastal canyon of the Santa Monica Mountains where the creek flows directly to the ocean shore, Corral Canyon Park rests on 1,000 acres of land and includes various hiking trails with gorgeous views. The Sara Wan Trailhead is a popular spot with a 2.5-mile hiking loop, and easy access to parking and picnicking facilities. This area is abundant with wildlife that includes quail, deer, and Red-Tailed hawks. Across from the park is Dan Blocker State Beach, accessed by a culvert under the Pacific Coast Highway.
There are two primary neighborhoods along the canyon ridge. The first neighborhood which offers ocean views, a 3 to 4-minute drive from PCH is known as 'El Nido'. A few minutes further one arrives at 'The Bowl' which offers both canyon and some ocean views as well.
