General Description

The Abbott's Lagoon Trail leads 1.5 miles from Pierce Point Road to a large lagoon along the coast. This route is an easy stroll through open and coastal scrub, with good spring wildflowers and excellent bird watching, especially in fall and winter. The trail continues a short distance past the lagoon to Great Beach.

Directions from Bear Valley Visitor Center: Travel north on Bear Valley Road to Inverness Park. Continue northward on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard (do not turn right).
