Short walk around a lake. Google maps was not very helpful getting me there. It kept taking me to the CA-13S exit ramp and telling me I had arrived. I did this trail and Shepherd Canyon back to back.
Relaxing walk with water and forest, well set up for families and options to lengthen walk too
Lots of goats, on west side of lake. Very fun for kids.
This a real pretty trail that's very easy. There are public restrooms and free parking just outside the entrance.
