If you are a bird enthusiast or just enjoy bird watching, this is an excellent hike. Unique habitat with a clear well traveled trail. Mostly flat, easily accessible. I was too early for the nature center. My only negative is that the location is somewhat...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.

Batiquitos Lagoon is an amazing place for walking and bird watching in the middle of urban Carlsbad. It is one of our favorite places to visit when in the area. Local volunteers do a great job of keeping up the trail and hosting the Nature...More

My wife and I go there quite often. The trail is next to the lagoon and is very beautiful. The nature center is very fun for kids to learn about all the animals that live there. Well worth a trip.
