Great surprisr hike up the hill and through history. I started out around the lagoon, and thought i'd go to the beach. Next thing I knew, i was touring old bunkers and heading toward the lighthouse which was unfortunately closed. What a sort of post-apocolyptic site... remnants of San FRANCISCO's defense system from over a century ago. I even saw a bobcat on the prowl... Quite a number of kids' camps touring the area so i even got caught up in a game of tag...

Red trail provided by AllTrails is not an actual trail. It's a narrow path on the side of the road. You can indeed follow it Rodeo Lagoon/Beach to Bonita Lighthouse but don't expect a nature trail--the path is 2 feet from the main road but fairly safe as vehicular traffic is only 25 MPH. I'd recommend just visiting Bonita by car then driving to Rodeo Lagoon/Beach and hiking the Coastal trail which starts at the parking lot/restroom of the beach and leads to all the abandoned WWII bunkers/batteries.
