Trail Description
About this trail
Laguna Coast Wilderness Park lies within some of the last remaining coastal canyons in Southern California. Forty miles of trails lead the visitor through oak and sycamore woodlands and up onto ridges with expansive scenic vistas. Some of these trails are hiking only trails, so pay attention to the trail maps and signage.

On this ride you can see California as it has existed for thousands of years. The Coastal Sage Scrub community covers hilltops and slopes, along with patches of Native Valley Grassland and Maritime Chaparral.

The Ride:
Follow the Willow Canyon double track up a steep ascent (you might want to warm your knees up before launching on this ride).

At mile 1.47 turn right onto the Laurel Spur and Upper Laurel Canyon Trail. At mile 2.6 you will cross under the highway and begin following the Serrano Ridge Trail. At mile 5.62 turn right onto W. Canyon Trail. At mile 5.81 the trail forks. Stay right on W. Canyon/Stagecoach North Trail. At mile 7.15 you cross under Laguna Canyon Road. At mile 7.7 you re-cross under Laguna Canyon Road. Bear right and ride across the parking lot of the Nix Nature Center. Continue on Stagecoach South Trail (which is your first real singletrack on this route). At mile 9.25 turn right onto Camarillo Canyon Road. At mile 10.0 you complete the lollipop loop and reconnect with Serrano Ridge Trail. Retrace your original route and arrive back to the Trailhead at mile 13.25.

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


Q: Lets say you are gonna mountain bike stage coach until you get under the freeway where would you park your car -Guest

A: To ride Stagecoach until you reach the toll road, park at "Nix Nature Center" (you'll have to pay [depends on the day/weekend] $3-$5) which is off the 133/Laguna Canyon Road. Stagecoach is off the parking lot, head south (there is a small section which also goes north, but thats fireroad, and you're not missing much if you don't ride it, the good stuff is south)

Review: It's nice to have access to trails through original coastal landscape. This trail is a scenic ride with expansive views from the ridges and distant glimpses of the ocean. It's not a technical singletrack.
