Crystal Cove Perimeter Loop is a 9.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Laguna Beach, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This is a serious hike with some good elevation gain that follows the perimeter of the park and provides beautiful views over the Pacific and east toward Santiago and Modjeska Peaks. This "grand tour" of Crystal Cove backcountry passes all three backcountry campgrounds and takes you up and down ridges and valleys. It's $15 to park.
Lots of greenery and flowers in bloom. Amazing vistas and not too crowded on the weekdays.
Great uphill hike! Very nice view of the ocean and other trails. Took about 3hrs to hike 9.8miles. $15/day to park or $5/hr. Very little shade so be prepared.
Awesome hike. Plenty of uphill, but there is plenty of flat parts as well. Wear sunscreen, a hat and bring plenty of water. Great views, and it's nice to end at the beach!!!
It was amazing
Love this trail! Very long with great views and a great workout! It offers areas to camp and so many beautiful scenic views. Can't wait to go again!
way to easy your basically paying $15 to park and walk on a hard pack firebreak road
