During the 1920s, oil was discovered at Bolsa Chica. Dikes were built, water drained, wells drilled, roads spread across the marsh. In fact, oil production is scheduled to continue through the year 2020. Portions of the marsh bordering Pacific Coast Highway have been restored by the state and are now part of an ecological reserve under Department of Fish and Game management. This loop trail takes you on a tour of the most attractive section. Bring your binoculars. Birdwatching is often quite good here.
