“Enjoy gorgeous views of the beach, ocean, and Rodeo Lagoon on this loop.”— Michael Beetham
Pass through the fire road gate into a parking lot, and cross Bunker Road. Turn left and follow the Rodeo Lagoon Loop Trail clockwise around the lagoon. Enjoy beautiful views of Rodeo Beach and the Pacific Ocean on the south side of the lagoon. The trail follows along the Rodeo Beach for a few hundred yards. This is a great place to stop and explore or to break out your picnic lunch!
Once you are ready to continue on, cross the footbridge to continue on the loop. An optional side trip would be to The Marine Mammal Center, where injured animals recuperated. Upon completion of the Rodeo Lagoon Loop, return to the trailhead by following your footsteps across Bunker Road, Miwok Trail, Bobcat Trail, and Rodeo Valley Trail.
