Tips

Take some time to relax and explore the 12-acre historic district, once part of the Irvine Ranch lands, consisting of 46 Cottages built in the 1920s and 1930s. For decades, families have camped and played here. Artists have captured the Cove's natural beauty on canvas for almost 100 years. Hollywood filmmakers made movies here and constructed small thatched huts on the beach for films they were creating. Some of these film sets later evolved into cottages. People built cottages on the bluffs and on the sand, and families lived in the cottages until 2001. Today, many of the cottages can be rented by the general public.

Strange Addresses? Don't even try to crack the numbering code in the Historic District. Cottages 00-9 were numbered in the order in which they were built, from 10, they were numbered according to the order in which they received their gas hookup.

Go early!! Popular tourist destination. Well kept, easy walking trail. You can add complexity to this trail, by adding in all the vistas, and paths up and down to the beach. Beautiful views.

Great easy trail to see the beautiful pacific ocean and tide pools. Steep hills to get to the beach so I’d recommend shoes with traction to get down there to prevent slipping.

If I were rating the surrounding area and beachfront property, I would give at least a 4 star. As nice as the area is the trail is nothing more than a roadway through the Laguna beach historic district. Other than a leisure stroll, minus the views, the trail itself doesn't have much to offer.

Beautiful beach, but not really what I was looking for. Wish the beach and mountainous portion of the park didn’t have the same address, as I was dropped off here as a mistake.
