Flat trail around some small lakes. Decent views but probably better in the area.

It’s a really solid, easy trail. Beautiful views of the mountains in the distance, the lagoons and trails are really well maintained. It’s a great, easy hike!

I didn’t like the first part of the trial to get to the lagoons. It’s in a flood watch area next to the river that is pretty static with not much water flow. It’s also sandy. But the lagoons are beautiful and it’s part of the state park. $7 fee to get in. The lagoons are a 5, the flood ditch was creepy.

Cost to get in is $7 per car. Trails were pretty awesome. When you get to the parking lot off Owl Road, the trail entrance is on the far end. There’s a trail that goes straight up and one slightly south that goes along the river. Definitely choose the one along the river - it’s shaded and the river is very pretty. Lots of trails branch off south or across the river, but if you take the north trail each time it’s easy to follow. At the lagoon split we chose to go south first so we could end at the lagoons. The loop is less shaded than the hike along the river so make sure you use sunscreen. The lagoons are beautiful. You can kayak or canoe in them. You can also rent horses to take the trails south of the river. When you get close to the end of the loop, at the southern end of the third lagoon, you’ll notice a trail to your right. The actual trail on here says to go further south a little bit and then loop back up but it’s easier just to take the trail when it appears.

There is a section that goes by the river that is sandy and there are signs that horses use this trail. Very woody and dusty. The trails around the lagoon are better if you don’t mind just going around them. Very shady there than the river trail. Best to go early to mid morning. Little warm in October still. The pups like the hike.
