Bommer Spur Professional Review and Guide
"This loop hike offers a broad cross-section of habitats in the upper reaches of the park. The trail begins in Laguna Canyon and climbs up the Big Bend Trail, named for a wide curve of Laguna Canyon. The trail continues up a sage-covered hillside to Bommer Ridge. From the 900-foot ridge are views of Crystal Cove State Park, Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, the Laguna coastline, and the oak woodlands in Emerald Canyon. The trail returns to the canyon bottom along a rocky footpath."

Great short hike with awesome views out to sea as well as inland. On a clear day you can see Catalina Island and Saddleback in the opposite direction.
My first hike in a year and a half. Challenging, but anybody should be capable of hiking it. I saw fathers with babies on their backs. Nice view from top, but wide open trails with bikers up there. Traffic noise a little bit of a downer, but hey its the burbs. Ladies hosting tent at entrance were great. It is a good hike for those who want easy access and not to difficult.
