Lorena d. on Bonelli Park Trail
Enjoyed this trail. It is more of a walk than hiking. Plenty of areas that are shaded and the trails are pretty much all leveled. No steep hills. Nice long trail with plenty of views.
Great trail for just about anything. I prefer to do this on the weekdays where there aren't many people and later on so you can see the beautiful sunset. There are so many ways to take this trail, you can really just start and follow whatever trail you want because its pretty hard to get lost at all.
Great trail for running or if not a runner good for walking and taking in some views. I wouldn't recommend mountain bike riding unless you have a good bike : ). Best times to go is winter and beginning of spring that's when there's more vegetation and more green. All around a fun and good park with lots of trails.
We hiked around the lake, sometimes on the road, other times on a dirt path. We almost made the mistake of walking around the airport because we missed the small fire road that takes you back to the entrance via the lakeshore. It was hot when we were in the sun and on pavement. There was some variation...not a completely flat trek. We didn't bring enough water but there are many bathrooms near the picnicking areas. I would definitely bring more water and snacks next time. I prefer a mountain hike but this was a pretty good fitness trail. It was sometimes confusing to determine which way to go but that can be part of the fun. There was no real way to get lost.
Interesting hike! Easy to get off the trail, we must have taken a few wrong turns because it was more like 8 miles by the time we were done. Getting hot earlier nowadays and although there is some good shade, there are also long stretches without shade so be prepared. Will try it again soon

Nice little hike. I got lost and walked all the way around the reservoir and found my way back!
I was at Camp Paige fire camp in the late 90's and wet use to hike antennas and sunset peak all the time. where the trail starts on this map is incorrect. the trailhead is called cardiac and is a near vertical 1/8 of a run/hike. I believe it's more over to the right of where they say it is. While antenna is the mid point of the hike, sunset peak is the real deal. should be no more than an hour hike.
