Sunset Trail

The Sunset Trail is an easy, dog-friendly, 3.25 mile hike in the Laguna Mountain Recreation Area that will take about 2 hours to complete with Fido. Or, you can take the 9.2 mile roundtrip out-and-back journey (connecting with the Big Laguna Trail). Located off of Sunrise Highway (SR-1) at mile marker 19.1, parking is located on the shoulder on either side. If you want to avoid larger crowds and take your dog to a place where he can run off-leash than Big Laguna is the place for you. This hiker-only trail is a great introduction to this stunning area that will remind you of the Rocky Mountains. Visit Website

    Great for dogs

    The Sunset trail loop is part of a larger network of interconnecting trails in Cleveland National Forest. It's great for doing a choose your own adventure kind of hike. The trails are very well marked and maintained. It was a bit muddy with melting from the recent snow (late February) but no problem with hiking boots. Our pup was able to experience snow for the first time and loved it.

    Dogs Must Be On Leash

    Nice hike thru meadows. We really hoped to find the little laguna and big laguna lakes but they were all dried up. Dogs had to be on leash. The trails were nice but made more for biking than hiking with dogs. Super hot in July! Still happy we went and might try again in the late winter/early spring.

    Great hike and views

    This trail is part of the greater Mount Laguna and Big Laguna Trail system. It climbs up from the Big Laguna Trail for fantastic sunset views to the West and nice views of the meadow and observatory to the east. Unlike the rest of the trails in the area, Sunset Trail is Bike free which is nice for pups. The whole recreation area is VERY dog friendly and I usually run into just as many dogs as people when I'm out there. Water loving dogs will have a couple of ponds to splash around in. Weekends can be busy but during the week you'll often have the whole place to yourself.
