    Hiking the Laguna Hills via the PCT

    5.0
    20 mi / 2000 ft gain
    This trail is well-maintained, but gets a little rocky on the PCT, and the Chariot Fire burn-zone between Penny Pines and Hayes peak will have a few downed trees and some overgrown grasses. On the other hand, the trail network of the BLT is confusing to follow as the entire network is named "Big ...

    Surf at Sunset Cliffs

    4.5
    This is a fun, soft, A-frame point break with a reef bottom and kelp beds a little deeper than the lineup to keep the waves clean.  Breaks right and a left.  Works even when there's a little bit of wind, but not a lot.  It's best on a  4-6 foot swell and only go on a  mid to low tide.  This is th...

    Both sides of the pier are awesome to shoot but depending on the time of the year/sun position one might be better than the other. Super mellow beach to chill out at and watch the sunset.

    Surf the South Jetty, Oceanside Harbor

    4.5
    The jetty's of Oceanside Harbor serve to protect and stabilize the mouth of the San Luis Rey River meaning the sand and subsequent breaks remain fairly consistent and sand bars last for quite some time.

    A day at the Silver Strand State Beach is a must, playing in the surf and searching for seashells.
