I was confused about where to start, then realized it is a loop, so it doesn't matter. Doh! Very nice trail, but I would label it closer to moderate because of the two kick butt hills. Beginners beware.

Nice trail, my first time here. It is painful to see the lake is dried and the vegetation is all so dead. I came by 8am, got to try earlier since it was already too hot to walk and the little bugs keeping flying around you.

It's a cool trail, but the lake bed is dried up so there's only really a bunch of dead stuff everywhere.

Great trail, the AllTrails description says it's only accessible October-June but I only saw a couple of short stretches that were closed for restoration (hiking in July). I did the Lake View trail and threw in the big red hill on East Ridge View trail, looping back on Gnatcatcher trail. It took me roughly an hour at a good pace with a couple of cool-down breaks. The trail itself is very nice and varied, got there at 10am on a Wednesday and it was pretty quiet though there were a lot more cars by the time I got back to my car at 11:15ish. Kind of cool seeing that the lake is completely dried up, and saw some nice plant life. Watch out for the heat!! You get a nice breeze in a lot of stretches but it gets very hot especially around the southern side of Lake View.

Hiked this past weekend, easy trail, not too many people but really hot! I think if we went earlier in the day it would been cooler.

Great! 3 different courses but my fave is going up the red hill. Medium difficulty for beginners.
