NOTE: Bolsa Chica Wetlands has two parking lots, North lot located on Warner Ave. near the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway. South lot is located on Pacific Coast Highway almost directly across PCH from the Bolsa Chica State Beach entrance (We will be meeting at this one – South lot). There is no charge for parking.
Hiking-with-friends would like to invite you to come out and enjoy a family-kid friendly hike/nature walk at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. The Wetlands is a beautiful conservancy and a natural habitat to our beautiful wild life. We will be taking it at a slow enjoyable pace to enjoy the scenic and natural habitat.
We will start from the parking lot nearest to South Parking Lot . The trail is very flat, although it is sandy in a few places. The trail starts off surrounded by dry brush and then opens up to being surrounded by 2 bodies of water. We will hike down the trail and admire the views and beautiful animals in this preserved estuary.

MY FRIEND SAID I COULD DO THIS HIKE; I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT:
Contrary to popular belief, you know your body and hiKing experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page, as the hiKe may not suite your experience level. We will have a better experience if every hiKe has hiKers of the intended level.
