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.

Really nice, scenic hike! Not many uphill trails, but there were some beautiful spots if you did go up a trail! We couldn't find the rope swing like others did, but it was still a very fun and enjoyable experience.

Not much of a hike, just a trail near the marshy bits of the lagoon. Some signage pointing out wildlife/fauna.

A little disappointing. Expected more Trail and less neighborhood/sidewalk. Also didn't get as near to the water as we expected. It's fine but I'm sure there are a lot better trails around.

Very easy nice peaceful trail, a few spots you could go up but end up in neighborhoods try to stay on main trail.
