Trail shared by Tina Bach

A nice and easy trail that meanders a bit over gentle hills.

Need to Know

The trail is located in a county park. Parking fees are $3 for day use, but the county offers annual passes that are a steal at $55 ($35 for seniors 60+) when compared to the cost of state park passes. Check here for more information.

Runner Notes

For the most part, the trail is smooth, if sometimes a bit sandy. Like most trails in the area, there are sections that are a bit worn though and require careful placement of feet.

Description

The Stagecoach South Trail connects the Little Sycamore Canyon Staging Area and Nix Nature Center with the Willow Staging Area, a bit down the road. It doesn't have any real steep sections but it is a multi-use, singletrack trail and one needs to listen for mountain bikers and horses.

Also, since this part of the park is wedged in a corner between the 73 Toll Road and Laguna Canyon Road, there is a bit of car noise for a good portion of the trail. However, it is a nice beginner's trail and leads to the Laurel Canyon Trail. A bit of car noise is a small price to pay to run all the other trails connecting to Stagecoach South.

Flora & Fauna

Usual SoCal brush, live oaks, and cacti.
