This trail scenic and family friendly. I took my six year old daughter on the Rio Ave to Annie's Canyon loop and she made it no problem. I can't wait for the rest of the trail to open after construction.

This is a beautiful and very easy hike along the lagoon. Lots of wildflowers to see as well as birds (herons, ducks) in the water. When you get to the sign for Annie's Canyon, choose the 'strenuous one way' rather than the 'moderate view point'. You won't be disappointed! This is where you will climb through a very narrow and winding rock formation. Warning if you are claustrophobic- it's very narrow! So much fun though. It's sandy and steep in parts but there are lots of foot holes. Very enjoyable

As somewhat claustrophobic, Annie's Canyon was a challenge that seemed to call for some expletives, but once out, I felt very proud of myself. If you too are claustrophobic, I will lend you my son to follow you and urge you on as he did for me! You too will feel accomplished!

The coastal lagoon walk is nice, but you really must see Annie's Canyon when you go through here..
