Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park in south Orange County covers more than 4200 acres of scenic canyons, rock formations, meadows, old oaks, and is home to lots of wildlife. We will be traversing the northern portion of this beautiful area to the spectacular views of Alta Laguna Park, ‘Top of the World’, above Laguna Beach.

Our hike will start at Canyon View Park in Aliso Viejo. We will go down Wood Canyon along Wood Creek, past the old corral, stopping at Dripping Cave. For those who want a more moderate hike, we will return to the starting point.
