Gorgeous hike work the 8 dollar recreational pass! Start at the entrance point by rattlesnake cove, head towards the dock and you will eventually see a trail head sign.

A decent hike near a beautiful lake. You have to buy an $8 recreation pass at the local marina (or elsewhere). The attendant at the marina won't take cards unless you spend at least $10. The trail itself is winding, mostly unmarked, and easy to lose and find again with the lake on one side.

Pretty ordinary hike. Not difficult from a fitness standpoint, but loose granite scree and trail erosion makes it less interesting. The setting is nice enough. Note that there are a couple different start points. The Jojoba trail starts at the main marina (about 2.5 roundtrip to Rattlesnake Cove). There another enter point at Rattlesnake Cove, which has a 6+ out/back.
