Explore beautiful Wood Canyon and discover its native flora and fauna with Laguna Canyon Foundation volunteer naturalists on this steep, uneven and rocky 5-mile hike (depending on trail choice, up to a 500 ft. elevation gain). While we will stop from time to time, spending moments to "discover," this hike isn't for beginners.
Please wear closed-toed hiking shoes and sun protection and bring plenty of water.
Meet at Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, Canyon View Staging Area. From Pacific Park/Canyon Vistas intersection, go northwest on Canyon Vistas. Park legally (note street signs) on or near Canyon Vistas, preferably between Coastal Oak and Madia (22144 region of Canyon Vistas). We will meet on the paved sidewalk easement leading toward Wood Canyon Trail.

With a special focus on Canyon Fire 2 from 2017, the displays show how fire has affected the land, the response during and directly after a fire, and how OC Parks and other partners help the land recover.
This exhibit features photos of historic fires, before and after pictures of fire and recovery, trail camera footage and a compilation video of Canyon Fires 1 and 2 from Orange County Fire Authority, firefighting tools and materials, and information on how to prepare for wildfires.
Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park and Laguna Niguel Regional Park are closed until further notice due to the Aliso Fire.

Fire crews continue to stage at Laguna Niguel Regional Park. That park is expected to remain closed through the end of the week.
