The lizard tail trail is a small segment of the hike shown.

There's a lovely incline at the beginning and not much shade through the rest of the trail. So many wildlife to see in the spring time! Careful for snakes though, almost tripped over one on the trail!

If you're looking for the cave it's going to be closer to the south end of lizard trail. If heading north, it's going to be on the left hand side. Be on the look out for the perforated side of the mountain.

This trail leads to nothing. I thought it would lead to the dome like rock as seen in the pictures, but it dosen’t. Has average views here and there, but lots of people and the sound of the freeway is present too.

LIKE AN UPSIDE-DOWN MOUNTAIN, CHALLENGING AND A GOOD WORKOUT

Did a couple variations of this & adjacent trails in the past week. Laurel & Lizard Tail have quite a bit of canopy which is rare in O.C. Was a welcome challenge. Has decent elevation gains.

Very fun but make sure you have good shoes because the first part of it is a lot of up hill.
