With the reopening of the Emerald Canyon Trail in the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park this month, we figured readers might enjoy a glimpse into what some consider the jewel of the coastal canyons.

Emerald Canyon Trail begins at the top of Bommer Ridge, a less than hour’s hike from Laguna Canyon Road.

This canyon drops into oak and sycamore groves and has a creek running through it during the rainy season and a large waterfall below.

From Emerald Canyon, the Old Emerald trail leads to Bommer Ridge and Boat Canyon.
