The pictures on this page were taken on 10/4/08 on a hike from Woods End to Barbara's Lake.
This route is about 4 or 5 miles to the lake and back.
The hike is much shorter, easy (and level) if
you park in either the James Dilley parking lot off Laguna Canyon Road (just north of the 73) or park in the Laguna
Coast Wilderness Park/Nix Nature Center parking lot and take the trail/underpass beneath the road to the lake. Parking
is $3.00 (the machine accepts cards).
We hiked several trails to the the lake starting from Woods End Wilderness Preserve, to Ridge Top Fire Road, Edison Trail and Barbara's Nature Trail, pictures below. Click any picture for
