The Canyon Area

The Laguna Canyon cuts through the San Juaquin Hills directly south of the city of Irvine.  Laguna Cyn Road runs the entire length of the canyon connecting Laguna Beach and Irvine.   The lower section of the Canyon lies within city limits of Laguna Beach.

Things to Do in the Canyon

Some of Laguna Beach’s main attractions, Sawdust Festival, Festival of Arts, and Pageant of the Masters are in Laguna Canyon.  The Laguna Playhouse, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, and the Laguna College of Art & Design are also located in the Canyon.  Dog owners love to set their furry friends loose at the canyon’s Laguna Beach Dog Park. This was the very first dog park in all of Orange County, California.

Wilderness Parks

Another perk to living in or visiting the Canyon area of Laguna Beach are the wilderness parks.

The Laguna Coast Wilderness Park consists of 7000 acres and 40 miles of hiking trails. Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is part of the Natural Community Conservation Planning program.

You can also access Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park from the Canyon area.  Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park is another wildlife sanctuary. It consists of 4500 acres of natural open space land and hiking and mountain biking trails. Hikers can enjoy some of the most spectacular ocean and canyon views.
