The trailhead at College/CVD has very steep ingress/egress and is full of dog poo (unlike most of the trails at Calavera).

Beautiful scenery. Away from any roads. Trail not marked and a bit hard to navigate

This hike & map is purely a flat path for Dogs and Bikes, not for hiking. Luckily there are other trails there that are a better option, so it wasn’t a complete waste.

Easy to moderate hike. Trails are hard to follow due to not enough trail signs. If going to the top of Mount Calavera it’s best to use walking sticks.

The trails here are pretty easy, it does get a little confusing at times because some areas aren’t marked. It’s also a funny sunny hike, so make sure you wear sunscreen.
The one thing that is very annoying are the screaming kids, people leave them at home!

It’s a great hike but easy to get off if the main trail onto an off shoot trail. Had to keep checking to stay on. The volcano is pretty cool.

Beautiful views and nice little lake. A little confusing to traverse with all the random side trails.

Moderate ups and downs. Varying terrain. Good workout. NOT for bad knees.

very nice

great multi use trail for all ages with much to see - lake, volcano, labyrinth, mtn top shrine, caves.

Great for a hike or biking, always people out on the trails with kids and dogs.

There are some only 4 parking spots. You climb down hill the first part and you have to climb up after hiking for 2 hours. I went middle of December and it was about 75F, it was too warm. There is very little shade. I don't recommend for a summer hike. Also the trail markers are non existent.

This trail sucks! Does not give you directions and the lake is full of poop do not let your dogs in or near it!! Will NOT come back!!!

Está bien.

Love my hometown mountain! Multiple trails around the lake and even up to the peak. Challenge yourself by going on the Oceanside trail head leading up the back of the mountain! Great views and you can find a trail for all levels

Love having this near my house. Can get anywhere from 5-9 miles depending on the trails I connect together. You cannot get lost, I'm convinced. Even if I wander off on a different trail it always connects with a trail I know. Bring water because it is an exposed trail and gets quite warm. I always have fun exploring out here and never tire of it.

excellent for quick hike around lake. peek has good views. i think there are better views on like 3 of the 40 trails going all around the volcano. mountain biking there is a lot of fun. definitely some easy paths to ride but others can be quite intense. steep incline with lots of big jagged rocks. hard to know which trails are which but ive gone on 3 rides thru the park for about an hour each time and i am starting to learn the trails. dog friendly. i never have an issue with parking either. usually some decent traffic on trails. enjoy! :)

A poorly marked trail without much shade. The lake is small and not much view...
