Laguna Coast Wilderness Park
18751 Laguna Canyon Rd, Laguna Beach, CA 92651

When locals began slapping "Save Laguna Canyon" stickers on the backs of their cars in the 1980s and '90s, this isMore what they were fighting for: vast swaths of preserved and protected open space, available and accessible to future generations so they can glimpse what California looked like centuries before there was a Starbucks on every corner.

Not all the battles from those days were won (note the hulking concrete mass that is the San Joaquin toll road), and housing developments continue to encroach, but 7,000 acres of something is better than nothing. And, after a day-long hike into the hills to photograph wildlife and native fauna, you'll agree that Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is a definite something.
