Big Bend Loop is a 4.8 mile loop trail located near Laguna Beach, California and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from November until May.
There is a $3.00 parking fee.
The 1st mile is straight uphill, but worth it with great views.
It was a great workout! Very steep hill but breathtaking views.

It's a decent workout, but pretty steep. View isn't worth the effort since I can just drive a couple miles and see it up close.
Great hike. Steep hills. Not much shade. Great views. Bring water.
That's the cliff note of the hike.
I do this track at least 1 or two times a week. If you park in Big Bend lot ($3) you will start up Big Bend 1.4 miles uphill and it is steep. Once you hit the top at Bommer and turn right it is level and then downhill on willow. You will pass the willow parking lot and proceed along 133 on the trails thought to Big Bend lot. I did my best time is 1 hr 33 minutes last weekend.
You can park in Willow lot and start there too but you will have 1 mile of flat land before you hit the steep hill.
