We've been to the lake a few times and walked and biked a few miles of the trail. Tough to bike in spots due to eroded trail. Lots of foot traffic and I didn't like the ATV's as they kicked up a lot of dust. Next time I go, I'll bring the kayaks and leave the trail to others.

This is a nice urban type path good for walking, running, and biking. This is not a hiking trail. I prefer the more wilderness type trails, but this was a nice paved path and a good walk.

Long hike, it was quite muddy this time of year, almost done thawing out. Bring a jacket! :)

Amazing walk, beautiful views of the bay and the mountains. I did not see any wildlife but enjoyed the sun and the views.
Note, there were several off leashed dogs. I get why people choose to keep their dogs off leash, but not everyone is a fan of dogs. Just frustrating no matter where you go there are people who don't respect others. However everyone should respect dogs roaming free.

Attempted this hike mid April, still a little too snowy. Will definitely go again in the summertime to avoid posthole'ing my way up
