Walked around the south lagoons. The area is great for biking and kayaking, not so much for hiking. The main walking path that runs alongside the paved bike trail is wide and well maintained. However, the paths leading to the fishing spots surrounding the lagoons are littered with trash and broken glass. Also, the highway noise on the west side of the lagoons is a bit distracting and takes away from the experience.
