  • 15+ Stroller-Friendly Walks around Lakes in OC

    Michele Whiteaker
    21 Jul 2014 | 7:39 am
    It’s relatively easy to map walking routes for stroller walks around lakes in OC, if you have the right tools. I create my own personal routes on MapMyWalk.com to learn distances. I can set the app to map my walk as I’m walking OR I can select routes ahead of time and keep them in my own personal library.  I don’t even have to have a SmartPhone to do this, I can sign in to the website and map walks with markers while sitting at my desktop. Go to “Create Route” and type in the park you want to map A “Distance” window will pop up on the map.

    Point Lobos State Natural Preserve in Monterey is a scenic wonder full of sea life, hiking trails, a cultural museum, and grand views of the Pacific. Trails are totally manageable for families, but most trails aren’t stroller-friendly because it’s rocky. As you hike, you’ll have peek-a-boo views of coves and then come upon full views. Check all the rocky outcroppings below you to see if you can spot any wildlife. We saw these seals on this rock and there was an egret and Great Blue Heron nearby floating on driftwood in a thick kelp bed. This Old Veteran cypress is oft…
