This is probably the most popular walk in north county. About 3 miles round trip through lots of different vegetation, including an area of cultivated indigenous plants, always with a view of the lagoon and its bird life. Only negative is an area where lots...More

Had a great view of the lagoon from where we were staying. Hope to do some hiking next time. Husband just had surgery, so we were limited in what we could do. Looking forward to our return stay.

This is a nice place to take your dog for a long walk, but I have heard others experience aggressive dogs. Just be careful and keep control of your pup!

What a beautiful place! The lagoon is a salt water estuary right off of I-5. There is a walking trail 1/2 way around the water. The lagoon is filled with wildlife, which is astonishing in the middle of a city. You can hear some noise,...More

The Lagoon trail is a safe and clean walking area, often see others enjoying the trail as well. We walked from one end to the other. It wasn't terribly taxing, mostly flat land but beautiful view of the lagoon, wildlife on a sunny day.

Easy walking path, interesting flora, lots of birds. Within sight and sound of I-5, it an oasis nonetheless.

Very nice, friendly staff at the visitors center. They have activities for kids and the path is relatively flat with lots of wildlife to see.

It's short, but lovely - great for bird watching or just taking a sweet little stroll or quick jog - out & back. I have a thing for lagoons and Carlsbad has a lot of them, but this one is the only one with a...More
