Good out and back any time of the year. Make your hike as long as you like following the lake. Start at Brown's Ravine lower ramp parking lot or walk in from a side street off Green Valley Rd. Watch for Poison Oak in spring and summer. Unsanctioned mountain bikers are usually polite. Beautiful any time and close to town!

Just the right amount of ups and downs for a moderate workout. Good trail.

Just hiked it this morning, nice bathrooms at beginning of trail, and the trail itself is quiet and nice the whole way. Few people out there in the AM, was a good experience.

Have always loved hiking here - narrow trails but the meadows are amazing at the right times of the season. I like taking my kids - simple run around hike

Great trail, but get out early in the summer. Gets hot quickly and parts are very exposed.

The trail was beautiful and had inclines. Just the right amount for hiking. There was a little bit of poison oak but nothing that stops you from the hike. The trail is obviously well maintained. My wife did see a snake (probably a lizard) and jumped so high! It was a priceless moment as she usually so in control!! We will definitely be back!

Nice well maintained trail with lots of shade. Nice views of what little water is in the lake. But I have never seen so much poison oak on one trail. I told my partners that I would skip this if they do it again. The poison oak was so abundant I spent the entire hike focused on avoiding it rather than enjoying the hike. It would also help if I wasn't so allergic to it!

Trail is great no one was there of course did go during the week .If you want to go near the river there are places to exit the trail and go to the river . just remember where you exited because it's a pain to get back to the trail . Also watch out for poison oak near the trail it is starting to grow near it .
