This was a lovely trail, very easy to walk and the lake was beautiful to sit and eat lunch next to.

This is a very fun trail and so far one of my favorites. The coast to crest trail can be linked to del dios gorge trail and santa fe valley trail. While there are a couple of technical sections on the Lake Hodges trail, but nothing overly difficult, overall this trail flows well and is very fun and is a great ride for all levels.
