This is a nice trail that starts at the Marina, runs along the lake for a bit, then climbs up the hill. Along the back side of the ridge is a nice stream. Heavily grazed, but there are wildflowers scattered about. Lots of shooting stars on the ridge, and death camas in the chaparrals along the stream. Show more
