This was a great area started the first hike up on the bluffs. The second time started at negro bar and went to the aquatic center mostly on dirt trails. Loved it

This trail was not difficult to find but if you are not acquainted with the bike trail getting to the Lake Natoma Trail can be frustrating. But once you are on it, Other than the falling rocks from the near by cliffs and rare and rumored Mountain Lion sightings this trail is beautiful. Lots of wildflowers, fish, animals, and of course birds. It takes you by the Negro State Park which is a nice little rest as well. Enjoy!

Great trail! Completely paved trail, with some off road single track trails looping around the lake. Very easy!

This trail was great! It had some uphill challenges that really got your heart going. Overall, very peaceful, not too crowded, and a beautiful ride along the lake.
