This trail is great for exploring children! There are so many things for them to pick up and see. Park outside by the Daley Ranch parking lot to avoid the entrance fee. From there, it's only a short walk to the edge of the lake.

Unless you wish to become a guest of the state, this is not a loop trail. You cannot cross the dam
