Great workout hike, contours lagoon, golf course, and nature trail This is a great workout hike during the week. This trail is one the entire family can enjoy since there is something for everyone. Lots of herons, mud hens, lizards, rabbits, lagoon, and flora views. It's not not too crowded, depending on time of day and weather. One drawback is bikes, and people stoping on the trail to enjoy the area, so pay attention.

Easy walk on a wide, fairly well maintained dirt trail. It runs between the lagoon and a golf course for much of the trail. You never totally get away from the sounds of traffic (I-5) but it gets quiet enough for small animals like lizards and birds to sun themselves on the posts along the way.

Went for a nice walk with my sister... this trail has many entrances, it is flat and about 1.5 miles in length. We found a swing that was at the West Point of the hike. You have a view of the 5 freeway and the ocean. It's beautiful

Great trail for a first time hiker/runner, or someone who's trying to get back into shape.

Easy to walk, flat ground... PLENTY of benches to sit down at and enjoy the view, eat a snack, or catch your breath. Can get windy past 3pm. Busy trail on the weekends, and in the mornings. Hardly anyone there on weekdays around noon. Haven't had any issues with bugs or wildlife. My husband and I frequent this trail!

Also, a lot of POKESTOPS! :)

This is a really pretty little walk. I like that there are a couple of trash and recycling cans along the way.

Pro: Very nice wide flat trail and excellent for families.....even young families with strollers. If you are a birder, this is also a great trail.

Con: You can hear the freeway for most of the trail.

Easy trail - wish it was longer. Many people and even more benches. Plenty of shade.
