This paved bike trail goes around the reservoir on the maintenance road. Lots of fishermen out here. The pavement is smooth, the views are nice.  You can park on the levee just off the Byron highway where all the fisherman park. It can get super hot during the summers.

Three stars only because of the section of Old River behind the Forebay. A lot of life back there. I didn't go past the end of the slough. The rest was a bit trashy and not much to see. No return trip here...

Beautiful views of Mt Diablo and Brushy Peak. Please clean up your trash.

They have easy trails to hike.But no restroom facilities out on the trails.I would recommend not to drink a lot of coffee or water if you go there.Especially, if you are female.A little different for we guys. Today was our first outing there and will probably go back tomorrow.If you like to be near water, it's not a bad place for that.There aren't many trees or hills as far as scenery .
