Join Laguna Canyon Foundation volunteers as we explore the beauty and diversity of trails in the backcountry of the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. This will be a strenuous, 6.9-mile hike (900-ft. elevation gain) over rocky, steep, and uneven terrain. We will hike through sycamore and oak woodlands, coastal sage scrub, and along ridges with beautiful vistas. Participants should be fit and able to hike long distances – not for beginners! For your safety and comfort bring 2-3 liters of water, a hat, a hearty snack, and proper hiking shoes.
