Beautiful, partially shaded hike along a creek bed and then along a ridge. Great views. Awesome rock formations. Moderate hill climbs.
easy, shady, and relaxing
Laurel Canyon, in and out, is one of the few mostly shaded trails in Orange County. Up hill mostly but nothing difficult to climb over. I've seen lots of children on this hike as well. If you stick to the In/out and don't take Bommer-Willow Trail back to the parking lot, you won't run into many mountain bikes, as they're not allowed on Laurel Trail past the Stagecoach Trail cutoff. Keep going on Upper Laurel past Laurel Spur-Bommer Trail and you'll see numerous huge canyon live oaks. Laurel Canyon takes on a completely different character as you come back down.
