Description

The trail starts from the intersection with Willow Canyon Trail and heads north, paralleling Laguna Canyon Road. Runners will pass coastal sage shrub and interesting wind and water eroded caves and rock formations. At about 0.2 miles the trail turns away from the road and heads northwest into Laurel Canyon. The trail ascends the canyon through oak and sycamore trees along a creek and ends at 1.6 miles at the intersection with Upper Laurel Canyon Trail and Laurel Spur.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
