The Laguna Visitor’s Center is located on Sunrise Highway (mile marker 23.5) in the heart of Mount Laguna. Staffed by the Laguna Mountain Volunteer Association, the Visitor’s center provides interpretive opportunities as well as the chance to buy gifts and recreation passes. Flush toilets, bathrooms, and picnic tables also provide a great family setting for an afternoon outside - and since the temperatures in the area remain on the cooler side year round (due to the higher elevation), it makes for great recreation any time of the year. The Kwaaymii Nature Trail is located in the parking area, which provides a great opportunity for a short hike through gorgeous alpine meadows after a nice lunch.
