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.
