We will begin the hike at the Alta Laguna Park/Top of the World, coming down Mathis Canyon (optional Carwreck up loop twice for the very fast hikers). We will pass by Dripping Rock, Cave Rock, then up Mentally Sensitive trail, going down again via Meadows, back on the flat shading Wood Canyon, then up to Carwreck to the trailhead.
In Laguna Beach turn inland on Park Ave from Pacific Coast Hwy. Follow until the end at Alta Laguna Blvd. Turn left and go few hundred feet until dead end. We meet at the picnic tables at the cul-de-sac end of Alta Laguna Blvd. If you park in the parking lot walk out to the street and down to the cul-de-sac end of Alta Laguna Blvd. where you will see people around the picnic tables.
