Views are great, and air quality beats that of the valley. However the trail itself doesn't lend to the water - expect to backtrack if you walk the lake shoreline.

This trailhead is not marked correctly IMO. You can start from the parking area and walk up to the road. Then walk a 1/4 mile upthe road until you get to the Edison gate where the trail actually begins. Or you can drive all the way to the gate and hope you get one of three spaces right off the road. If you dont want to pay the day use fee you could also walk the road all the way from the pay station. Great paved road walking lake adventure hike.

An easy and enjoyable hike on a hot summer day. This trail is paved and shaded and had lots of side trails down to the lake. We hiked to the power station and turned back at that point making our total distance hiked around 9 miles.

I wouldn't call this a hike, it is about 8 miles if you walk all the way to the power station though, and that was really neat to see. It's an easy shaded walk that is half on a paved road (no cars). Lots of beautiful views of the lake and places to stop to eat a snack. I would do this hike again, it was a relaxing day.
