Laguna Beach Wilderness Parks and Outdoor Activities
More than 19,000 acres of coastal wilderness, parks, open space and marine preserves surround Laguna. Walking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding and bird-watching are some of the activities found in the South Coast Regional Wilderness and surrounds. As Laguna Coast Wilderness Park's new headquarters, the Nix Nature Center is the gateway for recreational users to explore a vast network of linked trails throughout the 20,000-acre South Coast Regional Wilderness. The nature center's picture windows frame four main views into the surrounding parklands, challenging visitors of all ages to consider the wilderness from various perspectives. An easy loop trail just outside the center encourages visitors to appreciate the park's natural beauty. Restrooms with changing tables, drinking fountains, picnic tables, free maps and nature-oriented merchandise are available on site. Call the park at 949-923-2235 for program information.
