Crystal Cove/Laguna Coast Wilderness Hike - Old Emerald Falls Trail - 6.18 miles
One of my favorite things about Crystal Cove Park is that it is right next to Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. This gives me many more miles of ocean view hiking. Today I hit the Old Emerald Falls Trail which takes you on a nice, slow descent followed by a killer, sweaty climb.
I started at the Ridge Park Trailhead, took Bommer Ridge, right on Emerald Canyon Road, turned right on Old Emerald and started climbing. Made it to Moro Ridge, went right, then left on Bommer Ridge to the car. It's a nice 6.18 mile loop and a really good workout.

I'm always looking for great hikes in the Irvine/Orange County area. If you have one you love in the area, share it in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you!
