Fairly easy, nice in the summer / fall you have access to the sandbar as well as some little nooks to get into the water, later in the day the deer are also out and extremely friendly!

I visit this trail a lot, since I'm local. Very relaxing and easy. I like picking the blackberries when the season is in! Foresty and shady.

If you're looking for a shady run on a dirt trail then this is it. Park on Laurel street and head towards the entrance. This trail is essentially laid out as an infinity loop. 3 places to start from and they all bring you back to Point A. All in all you have dirt trail for 2/3 of the trail. The center trail is asphalt and you'll be running through a shady grove, next to small ponds, creeks as well as the impressive Mokelumne River. Small markers for wildlife viewing. Doing all 3 sections the trail is 1.8 miles. Flat fast and fun terrain.

So just went hiking here. Great shaded areas through the forest of trees but lake is very dirty. trail is well maked.

Great for a family outing. Easy hike.
