“Bolsa Chica Wetlands”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

I love the wetlands and try to hike down there frequently. There are lots of birds and it's not usually very crowded.

“A nice place to take a walk”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

I visit the wetlands a few times a year. It's a nice place to have a family walk. There are small fish in the water that you can see from the bridge. There are many rare birds that stop over at the wetlands. A great photo location.

“A great daily walk”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

I feel comfortable, a woman alone, taking a morning or afternoon walk, before work or after work to relax. It is beautiful, calming, nature trail.

“OK to stop by if you're in the area”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This was not a destination, but an okay stop along a ride dwon the Cal Pac Highway. We did not see much natural preserve, it is a small area surrounded by industrial interests. I guess it is nice that some area is being preserved. Good news that this area is helping the tern population recover.
