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.

These trails are awesome! You can choose your difficulty level from easy to strenuous. It's a very popular spot so can become crowded during mid-day. Lots of people walking, hiking, dogs and bike riders.

Great trail for a quick hour and a half -to -two hour hike, depending on your speed. on the whole 5 mile hike, there is a nice challenge up to the top, and because there is not much shade it makes the mild part of the trail a little more on the moderate level. Just pack the sunblock and a hat, and you'll have a great work work out!

This is one of my favorite place to go for a quick mountain bike ride. Has a few good climbs and nice flats. Only downside is that it can get pretty congested on weekend mornings.
