Laguna Beach and Bluffs is a 1.4 mile out and back trail located near Laguna Beach, California. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
dogs on leash
It's okay. As expected, crowded. Dog friendly so I took mine. Signs say dogs must be leashed, I guess not everyone can read. Overall we enjoyed it. Stopped for beverages and dinner. It is great that so many places allow dogs on the patios. Probably go back, sometime.
We did not take the entire trail because we couldn't see where it ended, but we hiked a good portion of it. Walked from the end of the boardwalk up into the cliffside paved walk that gives a fabulous view of the beach and ocean. Flowers line the edges of the walkway/cliff. Amazingly beautiful and easy walk to do!
Heisler Park is a beautiful, scenic ocean front park. It is worth checking out if you haven't seen it. Although it is a very easy walk, there are a few small inclines to make things interesting. At the north edge of this loop is Crescent Bay Park, another beautiful scenic location, situated above Seal Rock. Bring good binoculars during whale migrating season, and you will spot literally dozens of whales. Fun for the whole family!
Soft sand surrounded by concrete makes it ideal for those with mobility concerns. Whether into strolling or training for the next American-Gladiator, this sweet spot won't disappoint. I especially recommend walking on the shore by the tide pools. Bring h2o and light snacks. A towel and bathing suit is also not a bad idea in case you can't resist a quick dive into Laguna's pristine waters. Help keep it clean by packing away whatever you bring in. Have a happy hike!
