Description

Starting near Chapparosa Park, the Salt Creek Trail follows pleasant pavement on a gentle descent through suburban Laguna Niguel to the trail's namesake beach. Along the way, well-built underpasses ensure you never have to deal with crossing traffic, making this a great choice for families.

Upon reaching the beach at Salt Creek Beach Park, enjoy scenic coastal sand and dune grasses before returning the way you came.
