it was an okay hike, but the lake is completely dried up now and it was very hot. there are some nice hills and wildflowers but not a very interesting or unique hike. we some some hawks and a road runner though:) also you have to pay $3 for parking. go on a cooler day or else youll be sweating like crazy

Great hike, but don't do it on a hot day. Very few if any beach breezes

Nice trail! Watch the really steep descent on the way back from Ridgetop Trail to the parking lot. Phew!

This was a nice walk this time of year and on an overcast day. Wildflowers are blooming and lots of birds and butterflies. Also many lovely meadows. I did lake to Edison to mariposa trails and also went back canyon trail a bit.

I'd say this is a walk, not a hike, but definitely lovely. only big negative for me is you never get away from the road noise, there is always a traffic hum :(
