Traverse the Trails
Away from the waves, Southern California’s natural beauty endures on land. Just across Highway 101, Batiquitos Lagoon offers 600 acres of wildlife-filled wetlands and several miles of peaceful walking paths. Twist, turn, and climb your way through Annie’s Canyon, a small slot canyon at nearby San Elijo Lagoon that leads to a coastal lookout. Iconic San Diego hikes such as the towering seaside bluffs of Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and photo-worthy Potato Chip Rock (Mt. Woodson) are also within easy reach.
