I walked laps around the lake plenty of times, but I was not aware of the trails west of the lake till I saw the map on this app. You can get a serious workout hiking the trails on the west side.

I just went around the mile track around the lake. It's so great! The weather is nice, the view is beautiful,and the track is great for racking up the miles!

This trail is a very easy, beautiful jog around the lake. Lots of trees, so it gives just enough shade, small playground and fishing area for the kids. Very family friendly :)

Enough elevation change to make you work a little. Trails pretty well maintained but signage was a bit spotty. Not enough to detract from some nice scenery.

Relaxing at Chollas Lake: It's a little oasis with the sweetest wildlife perks. Walking from the parking lot toward the lake, one is likely to be enthusiastically greeted by pigeons and squirrels actually sitting side by side hoping for offerings of food. They are more likely to run towards you than away from you. And, it's an amazing experience to sit at the concrete table surrounded by very large birds who act as if you are one of them. Here you can forget that you're in the city, and forget your cares. Jog, walk, sit, or just enjoy the experience being a few incredible inches away from animals that don't mind you being there as long as you wish.
