  • If you and your date love outdoor adventures, Crystal Cove State Park not only provides amazing hiking trails for a good workout but breathtaking views of the ocean from Laguna Beach up the coast.
  • One of the best hiking locations in Orange County! Hikers and mountain bikers can enjoy hillside and canyon trails with breathtaking views North and South of Pacific Coast Highway!
  • Go north a block to Newport coast to save the 15.00 in parking, take newport coast to Ridge Park,go right to the top; the hike from up top is just as beautiful as from the bottom
  • Ask the park ranger for a hourly pass if you plan to stay for less than 3 hrs - the rangers are very helpful and accommodating when there isn't too much traffic in/out of the park.
  • This doesn't suck.
