This time of year everything was brown. Time of day probably was off too. Noon was good for exercise not so much for ocean vistas. Trails are poorly marked overall.

Top of the world is at the top of Laguna Beach. It has commanding views of the ocean. The other side has views of Aliso Viejo and the mountains the distance. Nice hiking trails are provided. Alta Laguna Park provides picnic, baseball/soccer, and bathroom facilities.

We've been doing some local hiking now that school's out and decided to drop by "Top of the World". It is aptly named and the views are pretty spectacular. This is an extensive collection of hiking trails combined with a neighborhood park and tennis courts....More
