3357 Alta Laguna blvd. , Laguna Beach, CA
ABOUT THE HIKE: This Sunday's spiritual commune with the great OC outback will take us along Laguna's scenic West Ridge Trail. The out and back route is on a ridge line with beautiful views of Laguna Canyon on one side and Woods Canyon on the other. This will be a timed advanced beginner hike of one hour out, and one hour back, with a short rest stop at the midway point. We will plan to cover the entire length of the West Ridge Trail, approximately 4.5 miles round trip, with 425 feet of elevation gain/loss. The trailhead is at Alta Laguna Park aka Top of the World, which itself has magnificent views as the name suggests. Restrooms and picnic tables are available within the park, where we will have our post hike celebration.
ABOUT THE PICNIC: We will picnic in Alta Laguna Park. Please bring food to share for the potluck Sunday Brunch. BYOB (beverage) As this may be an alcohol restricted area, we will exercise adult discretion and Fifth Amendment rights again self-incrimination. Picnic items will come from cars in the parking lot adjacent to the Park.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: From the 405 Freeway, take Laguna Canyon Road toward the ocean... turn left on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach... turn left on Park Avenue and follow it all the way up the hill... turn left on Alta Laguna Boulevard and park in Alta Laguna Park or on the street. We will meetup at the trailhead located at the dead end of Alta Laguna Boulevard, not in the Park.
