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!
