Laguna Coast Wilderness Park

Lying within some of the last remaining primal coastal canyons in Southern California is Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. Forty miles of trails run through oak and sycamore woodlands and up onto ridges with expansive scenic vistas. Rocky bluffs tower above the canyon trails. This is how California existed for thousands of years. Coastal Sage Scrub covers hilltops and slopes, along with Native Valley Grassland and Maritime Chaparral. You’ll also find riparian habitats lined by Willow, Oak, and Sycamore trees. After the winter rains see the streams spring to life, while in the summer you can easily cross over these seasonally dry creek beds. Visit the park’s award-winning Nix Nature Center to learn more about Laguna Coast Wilderness Park and for trail information and orientation.
