I was happily surprised with how much wildlife I saw!
a lot of this trail is next to the road. pretty heacily trafficked with people and their dogs.

Careful where you step, lots of dog droppings along the way.

I would really recommend taking the Disc Golf course. Trails not well maintained, but pretty scenery and bettet if you are looking for that hiking feel.

Owner: US Army Corps of Engineers. A brochure is available at the Visitors Center. Open year round, and an excellent, lightly used, multi-purpose trail. Double track. This is basically an out and back with loops. The actual trail is fine gravel, smooth, and well maintained. Making use of the connecting boat launches and campgrounds, adds to the mileage. Taking the hill up to the water tank offers a fast downhill. There are plenty of clean, toilet facilities (about every 1/2 mile or so, and each campground has water taps. This is an excellent family area. The actual trail head is a short distance north from the main HQ and picnic parking lot and is marked. This is a pretty location with plenty of photo opportunities.

For the more adventurous, there is an intermediate-level 9-mile out and back, single track with advanced sections, located between the Oak Knoll campground and Coyote point picnic area. Look for the small marker on the right just above Coyote Point Picnic area. The trail begins to the left of the marker.

Be advised, there is very little shade anywhere. So if riding in mid-summer, go early in the morning or late afternoon - it does get very hot in this area. Equestrian trails are also offered. Contact park headquarters for more information. Google the site for current contact numbers.
