This is a gorgeous spot, but be prepared to pay for parking ($5 or $8 I think) and see joggers/swimmers if it's warm enough.

Nice wide fire road with very little elevation gain. We did an out and back hike starting from the North end near the LA Department of water and power entrance. This would make a great Mtn bike ride.
Also added this trail to trailheadfinder.com, a much better user friendly site. You can get the gps track there without a paid membership.

Unable to locate trailhead at Lake Hughes Road. As per topo map the trailhead should be 1 mile south of Warm Springs Resort. Located a parking spot for a few cars with what looked like a very old trail at the location shown on the topo map. In a short distance the trail disappears. Does someone have more information that would help locate the trailhead?

This trail was desolate, and when we heard coyotes making a kill in the vicinity of the area we had just passed, it was a bit eerie. The trail seems to go on and and on monotonously and is not too strenuous at all. When you finally begin to loop around you are almostly instantly greeted and rewarded by beautiful views of the upper lake area that seem to go on forever! We covered nearly the whole range, and after it looped around it continued to incline a bit. This is where I think we chose the wrong path, because we let out of the trail on a windy road which took us an additional 30 mins to cover. Altogether about a 6 plus mile hike. Although the view of the lake was miraculous I probably won't be frequenting this trail.
