Join us for a pleasant and easy walk out and back along the North shore of the Batiquitos Lagoon Preserve.

Total length is 3-3.5 miles taking ~2 hours. A good place for bird watchers, so bring your binoculars, and a stop inside the Nature Center afterwards but you must wear a mask to enter.  There are several display panels along the trail to explain the history, plant, and animal life of the tidal lagoon.

Trail is flat, hard pack dirt any shoes will do and dogs are ok to bring on leash.  Still, please be considerate and bring/wear your mask when close by people.  Bring some water 

1) From Palomar Airport Rd onto El Camino Real southbound 1.2 miles take Cassia Rd west which will become Poinsettia Ln westbound. Or, Hwy 5 exit Poinsettia Ln eastwards. Follow Poinsettia to turn onto Batiquitos Dr southward, then right turn onto Gabbiano Ln to the end for parking.

2) If you’re northbound on El Camino Real then go westbound Aviara Prkwy to Batiquitos Dr (left-south). Follow 2 miles to left on Gabbiano Lane then down to end for parking.
