So near but so far from the City ambiance, This is the real treat of the wetlands to the residents of Huntington Beach. A place for rest , peace,purification and calm where anyone can step into nature again and enjoy basic-life the way it meant to-be.

Large wildlife sanctuary mostly for migrating and indigent birds. Nature for Huntington Beach naturalists.

The wetlands and marsh areas were beautiful. Hiking allows to see water fowl, turtles, and fish. It is great exercise and a great way to be one with the surrounding nature. Highly recommended.

This place is free, has plenty of free parking and has a great nature walk. You see many types of birds, even some owls (if you are lucky). There are docents on hand to answer questions regarding the flora/fauna, birds and animals around the area.

We rode our bikes from Huntington Beach pier to the Warner Street entrance to the wetlands. The only regret is that bike riding through the wetlands is prohibited. A bike path would have allowed us to more fully experience the wetlands.

The best thing I enjoy here is the great walking path through the wetlands. It's so tranquil. Don't be surprise if one of the amazing hawks fly right over your head. If you look real close you can also see some small orange crabs in the water right next to the wooden bridge.

It's ok. If you really want to see wetlands and lots of birds keep driving north to Bolsa Chica Wetlands. You won't be sorry.

This is a birdwatchers paradise. Miles of flat, albeit uneven, trails with wildlife galore. Coyotes, birds of all kinds, waterfowl, etc are everywhere. This is across from Bolsa Chica State Beach on PCH and has a small parking lot. The wetlands attracts many birdwatchers with monsterously big cameras who sit for hours taking bird photos.
