Bolsa Chica State Beach is a popular place for surf fishing for perch, corbina, croaker, cabezon and sand shark. Also popular is in the summer is bare-handed fishing for California grunion, a species that only spawns on sandy southern California beaches. The Park is located in Huntington Beach and extends three miles from Sunset Beach to Seapoint Avenue. A bike-way connects it with Huntington State Beach, seven miles south. Wildlife and bird watching are popular. Across the road from the beach is the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, operated by the California Department of Fish and Game.

We take our young kids here all the time. It’s a fun, easy hike with so many cool birds to identify. Beautiful, peaceful, and nice HB locals. No bikes allowed.

Me and my boyfriend run here ever morning and we love it, it’s so peaceful and beautiful! Love love love!!!!

Love this place, beat dog beach.

I have walk this trial several times , but last times I have noticed less and less water and more house construction. So much destruction around the area. machines extracting water too. Very sad .

es super para caminar 4 millas ahoy yeee

We saw three ospreys very beautiful! We went early around 7:00am

Easy, scenic trail. Saw rabbits, countless birds, lizards and a baby rattle snake! Down side, you get hints of car noise from the PCH and not secluded.

Perfect

Enjoyed the birding photo opportunity.

nice hike with easy parking. a lot of runners so this might be a good spot if you like to jog/run

Very peaceful when the weather isn’t great!

Great view!

it's alright, bikes restricted

A continuation of the Huntington Beach trail. Great area if you are a dog owner as they allow dogs on the beach. Tends to get a bit crowded and a hazard area as you may find yourself dodging someone's loyal companion. 4 star if I had a dog to take there.

Nice place it has stairs and hills

Very clean considering it’s a dog beach. Little bit difficult finding parking sometimes but it’s possible and well worth the walk to the beach!

A quick trip from Belmont Shore, Long Beach for me for some mid week miles. Soft surfaces and a great run along the ridgeline below the houses up top provide for an excellent view of the Ocean. Sunsets are solid here as well.

Though a bit small for runners looking for serious distance (I tend to do double or triple loops of the entire place) it is soft on your legs and boats beautiful wildlife when you want to get off of the roads.

Not overly crowded during the week, but for the weekend, get their early. The parking lot is small.

All in all the trail was nice. A few forks in the road, but the apps map makes it easy to follow. Plenty of parking, but there was a lot of trash in the bay. However, I would recommend it.

Love this trail! Try and schedule your runs around the tide. Mainly avoiding the low tide periods within the wetlands.

This is one of my favorite local places to run & walk. I can also bike the 5 1/2 miles there so that's a plus. Very limited parking.
