Mountain Bike Car Wreck Trail through Aliso Canyon

Hidden in the hills far above Laguna Beach, far away from any and every road is the fabled “car wreck,” 1946 Dodge 5-passenger coupe. It became so popular to visit the car wreck that Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park officially made a trail to it in 2013. It’s a fun hike that offers a cool vintage car wreck and an expansive view from Catalina to Mt Baldy. There is a 3.8 mile loop that makes the climbing a little easier, or you can do a shorter hike to the car wreck and back.
