Starts at Nix Nature Park. $3.00 parking. I biked from Irvine, took about 20 min. Once there, Stagecoach starts you immediately climbing, narrow trail, lots of shrubbery and cactus to poke you on the way up. Inclined slow speed switchbacks abundant. Were a few other hikers but not much other traffic. Climb up rocky but beautiful terrain well worth it. Quick downhill section over medium size rocks, StageCoach trail in fairly good shape. The climb back up and through Serrano and the rest of trail is awesome. Views of Laguna and the ocean are priceless. Definitely bring a camera!
