I am a firm believer that fitness is not meant to only happen in the gym. If you want to live a fit and healthy life it truly has to be a lifestyle. So whether I’m at home in Southern California or traveling I like to find ways to be active outdoors…and going for a hike is always a win in my book!
Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is less than 30 minutes from where I live and one of the things I love most is that when you start hiking you feel like you are in a completely rural slice of the world. There are more than 40 miles of trails great for hiking, mountain biking, trail running, horse bike riding, and exploring nature.
If you are traveling to Southern California and looking for some hiking options, I’d highly recommend Laguna Coast Wildnerness Park. There are a wide variety of hiking trails with varying levels of difficulty so regardless of your fitness level, you can find a trail to hike. There is also a nature center on site if you’re interested in learning more about the local plant and animal population and the views from the trails are simply breathtaking!
It is my hope that this post inspires you to find new ways to be active right where you live and wherever you travel. What places near you are great for living a healthy, active lifestyle? (Because I’m always looking for new things to add to my bucket list!)
