A mere 40 minutes from downtown San Diego is the Laguna Mountain Recreation Area. Visiting Laguna Mountain is almost like visiting another part of the county as the terrain transitions from a desert environment to a mountain top conifer forest. Within the recreation area is the Big Laguna Mountain Meadows – these meadows are truly beautiful and await your visit.

Sunset Trail winds through pine forest for two miles past a small reservoir (Water of the Woods) and connects of the Big Laguna Trail. There are beautiful views of meadows and panoramic views of the ocean at one popular overlook. Big Laguna Lake lies to the east.
