Emerald Canyon Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Equally as beautiful as El Moro Canyon in neighboring Crystal Cove State Park, Emerald Canyon receives much less visitation. Entry to the lower end of the canyon by way of Laguna Beach’s city streets is blocked by a formidable fence, so it’s only accessible from above.

Both hikers and mountain bikers follow the route described here. Take care not to brush against the luxuriant poison oak lining the trail."
