“An easy loop in Laguna Coast Wilderness Park.”— John McKinney
Parking fees are $3 per car daily.
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. Turn left onto Laurel Spur heading south.
At the intersection with Willow Canyon Trail, turn left onto the doubletrack trail which heads back south to the Willow Canyon parking lot. There are some nice views of parkland as runners descend this trail.
Some of these trails are multi-use so know the right-of-way rules and be aware of other users.
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.
The park helps to protect the diminishing coastal sage environments.
