We were staying at a home with this view. There are walking trails here around the north rim, great bird watching, fresh air and a spectacular view of the ocean, coaster train and waling distance to the beach in Cardiff.

This is very close by, and it is probably a long walk. We did not complete but since it is a flat walk, it is good. We enjoyed. Saw a lot of people walking/running/walking their dog.

We normally park at the extreme west end of the trail and then just walk or run toward the east end of the trail. It is a very good place for this sort of thing.

Flat and easy walk for all ages. Views of lagoon towards ocean. Grasslands and riparian. We go here at least 3-4 x a year.

The Batiquitos Lagoon is a terrific place for a relaxing stroll along the paths and trails. There are several improvements along the trails that have been installed as Eagle Scout projects and they certainly have improved the experience.

We're always looking for places to walk that are nice and where we can take our little dog with us. This was a great walk. Ours was a one-hour walk. Nice views of the lagoon. Lots of other people with friendly dogs and friendly walkers....More

Always a beautiful lagoon to drive by as you cruise the coastline. I would agree that while a pleasant walk not the most beautiful when surrounded by so many other coastline views.

If you did not it was there, you would never know that Batiquitos Lagoon is right by Hwy.5 and the loss would be your bad. It is not that easy to find, but with GPS, it is just a few turns away. Park your car,...More

Get off the 5 on poinsettia lane and then go straight through Paseo del Norte, next turn right on batiquitos drive. Lastly, turn onto Gabbiano lane and drive all the way to the end and you will find the start of the trail... More
