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.

I took my dog on this trail and it was so much fun! I have a very old dog who also has arthritis and can't do many hikes but I like to get him outside as much as I can. He loved it! He was so excited and it was just long enough that by the time we got back to the car he was ready to sleep.

Great easy hike to do with little ones. Stroller friendly and wide enough to walk side by side. Well maintained with lots of joggers.

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.

Great walk for dogs! My dog was exhausted and loved meeting other dogs.

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
