$3 parking fee. Some mildly technical parts, but mostly fine. Great views of Laguna Canyon. Going in late April / early May and the yellow mustard will grow taller than you in some sections.

We took a Lyft to the Big Bend trail head. There are printed maps to take as well as clear markings along the trails. We did the Big Bend to Bommer Ridge to Laguna Beach Bowl to finish right back in town (90 minutes). It was pretty much straight up in the beginning and then along the Ridge with ocean and canyon views for the middle of the hike which was beautiful scenery and then steep decline (quad burn) down to exit right by the Pageant of the Masters. We would definitely do the one way hike again.

So this was my first official hike.. it was great but i got a little confused and ended up doing the hike backwards which meant I was hiking straight elevation.. i did get fatigued and eventually called it a day once we made the climb up but it was a lot of fun and I couldnt wait for my next hike.. unfortunately the mountainside was affected by a wildfire so it wasnt very lush and pretty but the views were amazing. I want to come back and do it again.

A fun trail. The first part is pretty darn steep, as is the descent. No shade, so go early if it's hot.

My group accidentally did this loop rather than the Big Bend loop -- was still fun, and considering we had kiddos in carriers, probably better to have done a slightly shorter loop. Beautiful views out to the water and a nice cool ocean breeze. Some parts were a bit more technical than we would've liked, but we did it ok. I'd recommend it.
