TRAIL RATING: MODERATE TO STRENUOUS
TRAIL LENGTHS (One-Way)
Hike into one of the wildest stretches of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve. Annie’s Canyon Trail, once prone to vandalism, was recently restored. It is now open to visitors capable of hiking steep switchbacks leading to awe-inspiring views. It is named Annie’s Canyon Trail in honor of a conservancy supporter, Annie, a 30-year resident of Solana Beach. It is her desire to expand and restore wild areas for nature and for people.
The mission of San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust, is to protect and restore the resources of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, its watershed, and related ecosystems for the benefit of current and future generations.
During and after periods of significant rain, the canyon portion of the trail will be closed for safety (overlook portion open).
