Lake Chabot via East Shore Trail is a 3.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Castro Valley, California that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

A very easy paved path that follows the shoreline of Lake Chabot. It also connects to the West Shore trail for additional length if desired.
We hiked along the lake shore for 9 miles, starting from east shore trail and finishing in west shore. Most part is nicely shaded. The elevation gain is minimum and the length is OK.
