Day 642: Laguna Coast Wilderness Park - Willow Canyon - Laguna Niguel

Mysterious Rock on the Laguna Trail

Day #642 * Hike #763 * New Track #631
Sunday August 18, 2012
Willow Canyon - Laguna Niguel, California
Laguna Coast Wilderness Park
My Tripometer: 20 Minutes * 1.25 Miles * +100 Feet

 Park Entrance

From the 73 Freeway (Toll Road), exit on the 133 and head south toward Laguna Beach.  You are on Laguna Canyon Road.  Less than a mile down you will pass the El Toro Road intersection.  The park will be immediately on your right.

  1. I really like looking at this place. How can such a beautiful place exist? I hope it stays the same for years to come for those who are yet to see that trail in person. Safekeeping for future generations. We owe it to them.
