Example text

From the Rios Avenue Trailhead, you can follow beautiful paths that meander along the West Basin’s south shore. You will stroll by coastal sage scrub vegetation, which looks bright green in winter and spring and drab in summer and fall. You will also walk through groves of eucalyptus and other nonnative trees. Eroded sandstone bluffs half-hidden behind a screen of vegetation provide an impressive backdrop for the placid lagoon. 5 mile you are approaching the embankment of I-5, and this is a good place to turn back and return to the Rios Avenue Trailhead.

As you continue under the freeway and farther west, the white noise of speeding cars mercifully fades, and broad vistas of the lagoon are in view to the south, backed up by the wooded residential areas of Del Mar. 1 miles into the hike, you come upon an observation platform, which marks the start of a planked portion of the trail called The Boardwalk. Bicyclists must turn back at this point; they aren’t allowed on the planked section. The Boardwalk exemplifies 21st-century trail-building techniques, with composite material underfoot and plenty of interpretive panels to educate the public about the cultural and natural history of the lagoon.

You’re now on a rolling plateau, and the reservoir lies just ahead. Right before reaching the picnic area, you’ll cross the unpaved Ridgeline Maintenance Road. After filling your water bottle, head east (uphill) on that road, and then make a right turn to curl downward past Escondido Overlook (another picnic site). The maintenance road continues east—as do you—along Olivenhain Reservoir’s shoreline on a sometimes-uphill, sometimes-downhill course. Your gaze takes in the whole of the reservoir, its surface reflecting whatever color the sky happens to be at that time.
