  • Beautiful green forest just about 20 minute-drive from San Juan Capistrano, off 5 freeway. There are a dozen of pretty established hiking trails which start around famous Candy Store. You need to have an Adventure Pass in order to park at the trailhead.
  • Nice hiking area. Great for biking, hiking and running. Sometimes a fee to many cars and motorcycles but not always
  • Nice ol' ladies. Get your National Park passes here. No lines!
  • Lots of great hikes with fantastic elevation changes. The vegetation and wildlife lends itself to the appreciative eye. Would highly recommend the hike up Garnet peak especially at dusk or dawn.
  • A wonderful treasure in southern California. Many many places to experience.
