Come out on Mother’s Day and celebrate the day with 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 afterward. There are several display panels along the trail to explain the history, plant, and animal life of the tidal lagoon.
The trail is flat, hard pack dirt so any shoes will do and dogs with water are ok to bring on leash. A bathroom in the Nature Center is available.
Directions: 1) From Hwy 5, exit at Poinsettia Ln, go a little east and take Batiquitos Dr (right) southward, then right turn onto Gabbiano Ln to the end for parking or anywhere along the street is ok.
