Small hike out and back along the lake. Too touristy for my liking. Was very windy and dry the day we visited (the same day the Napa fires happened, which has been very unfortunate). It got boring and repetitive 1-2 miles into the trail so we turned back.

Additionally, after reading about the history of this lake, I do not think this is my kind of place. I doubt I will visit again.

Nice easy, short little hike. Part of the path was closed due to a broken bridge, but the detour signs were relatively clear.

A very easy flat hike. Last hiked in mid-April after rains had the creek high. Flowers everywhere. A nice combination of grassy, Oak-filled pasture lands and rocky canyon. An Uncrowded and remote hike. When water is low a rocky sandbar halfway along hike makes a good lunch spot.

Loved the hike! Beautiful views. Part of the trail was flooded so we had to take a detour. It was perfect for the dog too!

A nice walk if you're out in that part of Berryessa. It's nice at first but it all starts to look the same after a while. Plus it's not a loop so you have to come back the same way. Just got boring after a while.

Nice hike. Beautiful lake views, trail is along lake, not heavily trafficked today (January), dog friendly, saw deer, grebes and heard bald eagles (they were hiding).

No additional dogs or humans on this trail made for a quiet day. The views were great and there were geese in the water and various butterflies dancing around.

Lake is low but views are very pretty. Woodpeckers thrive! Trail is well maintained and I am looking forward to going back in the spring. Super friendly and knowledgeable ranger at the visitor center gave us good maps too. Found no bugs.
