Laguna Coast Wilderness Park‘s entrance is along Laguna Canyon Road and is open to visitors from 8am to 4pm with a cost of $3 for parking.
As Darren and I strolled, and sometimes struggled, past oak and sycamore woodlands, onto ridges with expansive scenery, and through rocky bluffs that tower above the canyon trails, we felt as if we was seeing California as it has existed for thousands of years.
From the top of the park, there are several trails to explore and the views are incredible. Temple Hill, also known as Top of the World, is the high point of the coastal hills surrounding Laguna Beach and it is just a glimpse of the many views the park has to offer.
The top of the canyon is the perfect place to find rest and relaxation before making the return journey. The panoramic views of Orange County are a crystal clear reminder of why we moved to California in the first place.
