Sutherland Lake is a moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Ramona, CA that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for walking, nature trips, birding, and fly fishing and is accessible from March until October.
Start where the pavement ends on Black Canyon road in Ramona and head North about 5 miles, hang a right at the bridge and follow the road about a mile up to the dam. I saw two cars, three hikers and about a dozen mountain bikes so it's not crowded. I found easy but long, about 12 mile round trip.
