California Orange County - Sunset Car Wreck and Caves

Sunset hike to some pretty iconic markers and views in Laguna Beach!
This hike begins in Laguna Beach at the top of the mountains at a place called top-of-the-world. There is a nice trailhead here with good parking, bathrooms and water. We descend into the scenic Aliso Wood Canyons Wilderness park along the West Ridge, Cholla and Wood Canyon trails. Down in the canyons there are woodlands and streams and we will visit 'Dripping Cave' an old hangout for stagecoach robbers.
We will climb out along the steep and rocky Car Wreck trail. There is a mysterious wrecked Volvo up there we will pass on the climb out and watch the sunset from the Top of the World. Sunset is around 7:45 this time of year!
