Wouldn't recommend this trail to anyone wanting to enjoy a beautiful walk. Unfortunately it is not kept up with. Tons of weeds, old branches scratching you as you walk, and just not very clean. Plus, once you reach any view of the lake, it just looks swampy and unattractive. I'm sure if it was maintained, it would be a bit nicer, but since Jedidiah Redwoods is so close, I'd recommend to just go there.
