Short and flat walk around a small lake in Atascadero. It is near a very nice shady park and city zoo.

Dirt trail that encircles Atascadero Lake. Most people access it from the Park. I've jogged it a few times. Probably a 1.5 mile loop altogether, if that. Totally flat and easy to navigate. Traffic is moderate. The view of the lake is decent and there's benches every so often. Good place to jog or walk your dogs.

This is a nice place in the neighborhood to take a stroll or jog around the lake. Water is at full capacity now. Ducks are out. Also, great place to sit and have your lunch overlooking the lake.

Super easy walk around the lake. Beautiful scenery and it's neat to listen to all the bird chatter. I often see deer as well. Almost everyone picks up their dog poop. I would really consider it more of a gravel sidewalk than a hiking trail. Sometimes there's a funny smell and little fly clouds, and it is quite heavily used with a road going all around it, but it is definitely still worth a visit.

Kind of stinky and sad that the lake is dried up but nice easy walk to bring kids and dogs.

A nice trail around a small lake. There is a playground at the north end of the lake.
