I have only run part of the trail but I love it! It is a great workout with some steep inclines. I did get lost a few times but that added to the fun.

Majestic lake views, varied terrain, an equal mix of sun and shade, not overwhelmingly crowded and super clean. Bathrooms are plentiful too.

This hike is closer to 10 miles and while it is doable for humans on a 90 + degree day, it is not safe for dogs. I chose this hike because I was looking for a long, mostly shaded trek given the heat. The hike has beautiful views and a lot of shade as described, but I did not expect to find several stretches of scorching hot pavement that my dog and I could not avoid. I would recommend doing this hike on a cooler day or in the early morning. Dog owners beware.

I biked this trail today, I'm new to mountain biking and this was very tough for me. I had a lot of fun and I see myself coming back here again and again to work on my biking.

Lots of shade, gorgeous views and very accessible.

Great place to walk but watch for the bikers for they travel fast on the path.

Grueling but rewarding.

wonderful hike!

Nice breezes for a warm day, pretty smatterings of wild flowers and the front side was deserted. Second half of the loop on horseback/Brandon had more people (probably because it’s flatter).

Good civilized trail

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

The return 1/3 of the hike is definitely on the high end of moderate with the steep uphill climb, but totally doable. I went after a week of rain, so about 40 yards at the bottom at lake level were more creek than trail, but relatively easy to hop in most places. Horse poop at the top and accessible water at the bottom were a tad challenging to keep my off-leash dogs under control, though.

Great, very scenic trail. Thankful to live close enough to enjoy it often.

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.

Very nice trail. Partially sunny, partially shady, both flat and hilly areas. My feet started hurting around mile 7 and were killing me by the end, but after I rest up, I plan on doing it again. Also, I saw a wild coyote on the hike, that was awesome!

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.

Linked to the Lake Trail from the TH at Grass Valley and Skyline roads-convenient parking and only adds a couple of miles to the hike

Beautiful trail.

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

Very challenging but worth it.
