Photo of Batiquitos Lagoon

Batiquitos Lagoon borders Carlsbad and La Costa in northern San Diego County. As the lagoon is practically in our backyard we go walking there often, especially in spring when the tadpoles turn to frogs in the little creeks. I have taken my girls running there, in their jogger stroller, at least 200 times when they were little. On weekend mornings you will find many people on the northside trail for bird watching, dog walking, jogging or just killing time.
