This was a paved walkway that followed a golf course...

Was not a trail pArt of trail did not even exist.. Was just a path along a golf course . Not a hike.

Going off what Julie said there is lots of trails to see and explore so many that I at times did not know what one I was on....I enjoyed the hike though the oaks and views of the lake would have been great if we were not in such a terrible drought.....With all that said you could spend hours exploring and not see a soul and than off in the distance you can hear the laughter of children playing in the lake......The trail is pet and mountain bike friendly......Oroville has many great place to explore...Get out and play...Happy Hiking!

The trails around Lake Oroville are great. There are many to choose from. Park by the spillway boat launch and get on the Potters Ravine trail which is an 7 mile hike. You can continue down from the Potters Ravine trail to the North Fork trail which adds another 7.7 miles one way. or park near the Loafer Creek boat ramp or Saddle dam parking lot and explore four different trails. all of those trails Bidwell Canyon Trail, dan Beebe trail, loafer loop, Roy Rogers Trails are moderate. Average hike is probably 6-8 miles. They most all take you in a circle and have campgrounds available as well as horse camps.
