This one was nice and relaxing. Great views and family friendly. Found some great spots to take a dip and cool off. Oh yeah, came really close to several burros!

Great out and back 3 mile trail. Easy, kids and pet friendly. Nice little side trails to the lake. Get there early fills up fast and park closes when it reaches capacity

Great easy 4 mile hike with lake side views. Some parts may be considered moderate because of the loose rock and soft incline but perfect for beginners or those just sealing a small escape. I went early to avoid traffic (7:30am). On my way out, the crowds were starting. Saw ONE wild burro but that’s it. Maybe next time.

Really nice trail. Lots of people hiking and fishing along the lake. The climb coming back up is deceptively steep

Great weather and warm enough to jump in the water. We saw burro in the desert and even walked right up to a rattlesnake! Yikes and close call! It was great for my kids ages 6 to 11 and two dogs. Just watch out for the rattlers and teddy bear cholla which can be close to the trail at times. It was a lovely hike and great to have the picnic tables, parking and bathrooms.

Wonderful trek! The Burros were plenty and very friendly almost to the point of getting in the way. Bring plenty of water as it is hot even in March. Cacti and native plants just beginning to blossom. A little more rain and the flowers will really be magnificent!

This is a nice easy walk. Some rock but not a lot. Beautiful views of the lake. A few gnats but not bad. You do have to pay the $7 park fee if you don’t have the yearly pass.

It’s a nice hike! Don’t get me wrong. Very clean and well marked and just difficult enough to get the heart rate up a little. But it is a little anticlimactic as the best views are towards the middle and probably not worth the entry fee into the park unless connecting with other trails. If you go the whole length of the trail it’s actually closer to 4 miles. Didn’t see any burros but saw plenty of signs of them such as droppings and prints. I recommend either starting far south and connecting with Pipeline, or if you just want to do the Burro Trail, start at the north where Pipeline is (trailhead is over the by the water shed thing) and then turning back when you come to the restrooms and parking lot by the lake.
