South Coast Wilderness in Orange County. This hike is harder than it seems for a 4.8 mile loop because there are two sections where the trail goes up and back down again, so be prepared for a decent amount of elevation change. The only down side to hiking here is the limited amount of hours the parking lot is open. The lot is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and parking costs $3.

Rating: Elevation Gain: 400 ft. (Moderate), Distance: 4.8 Miles Roundtrip (Moderate).
Time to Complete Hike: 2 - 2.5 hours.
