Tranquil and scenic. Very well maintained trail and a lot of coverage of shades. It is a very comfortable hike even on a hot day. The 9 mile distance makes it a real work-out.

I've done this loop many times, both hiking and running. It's an excellent trail to run, just the right amount of challenge. Gorgeous views of the lake in some places. A nice mixture of sun and shade and excellent wildlife viewings. Love this trail - especially now that the dam is open again!

Clean, marked well, multiple challenging inclines, some scary narrow steep areas, finished in 2.5 hours running walking. Def would do it again

good little running trail

Family friendly flat Ezy walk you can ride your bike next to the water you can rent a boat you can also fish in the lake there’s parking on the street so you don’t have to pay the lot parking there’s also picnic area and BBQ pit

Was a fun trail took about 3 hours to complete. You get to see a great sight of SF through the trees. It was the first time actually going on a hike with my girl and my dog.

Nice Sunday wake up

Hiked the around the whole lake, it was beautiful. Not to strenuous, we started on the left side by the bathrooms/Marina and would do that again. It was shady and the incline was not to bad.
Going the other way we would of been in the sun during a steep dirt trail portion. Started at 8:30am done by 1:30pm. Stopped after mile 5 or so, found a nice bench with a view for lunch.

It is a very pretty trail.

I went on this hike today. It was a great way to spend the day. It was peaceful and beautiful.

Beautiful trail.

Late summer the lake gets a little stagnant and can smell a little.

Very challenging but worth it.

Beautiful! We just did 1.5 miles on the left side of the loop and then back. Saw four deer! Nice and shady Lakeside hike. Loved it!

I enjoyed this hike. It starts off with about two miles of pavement, then goes to about the off-road, and then ends up with the two miles of pavement.

Depending on the time of day, and the time of week it can get busy here, but the trails are well maintained, and the views are beautiful.

Lake Chabot is a local fave. Unfortunately after this crazy winter you can't do the full loop. What you can do is go as far as you can and then wander upwards through the state campsite slightly bewildered (stick to the Lake Chabot bike loop) and then find the Live Oak Trail to get back down. And when I say down... it's straight down. It was a boggling experience BUT! There is a killer view of the lake if you persevere! You got this.

This is a very easy trail although marked easy. Usually, easy as marked by AllTrails is moderate and moderate is hard.
It is a paved trail for about 1.5 miles and there's a spectacular view of the lake around for a mile. Then the view turns into marshland for a half mile and through woods the next half mile as you loop around the hill. As we had planned a shorter hike today, we just hiked back out to complete a 4 mile hike. There are trails cutting across to the other side of the hill and we plan to take up those trails on our next visit.

This trail is not closed. There's an area that is closed and that's the part were you turn back around. However, there is a really steap hill that is about a mile long, that is a challenge to walk up, but I made it so you can to. You do feel out of breath and your legs, and thighs are burning.
