HikingGreat!

Started on sunset side of loop. Nice downhill, shaded, a bit of rocks but easy. At approx 1.5 mi turned right towards Sunrise Hwy and loop was 3.1 mi or so. Parked in turnoff near 19.1 mile marker. Good signage. Bikers and hikers around on Big Laguna portion. Adventure Pass needed.

Well marked and maintained trails. At 5000 ft elevation, the temp was perfect. Need a Cleveland Nat Forrest pass ($5).

First to Review

Great 7.8 mile hike/run! Go through trees then run through the fields. Saw a beautiful coyote trucking through the grass.
