Very nice, wide, well maintained trail...however, there is very little incline and almost no shade past the first mile.
There are tons of mountain bikers on this particular trail going very fast.
Wildflowers are in full-bloom and the water level is much higher than normal. I took so many pictures and posted a few on here.
Nice walk. Pretty view. Too many bikers for a relaxing walk. Lots of freeway noise too if you are someone looking for a quiet, peaceful environment.
Easy hike with breathtaking views of Lake Hodges and the dam!
This was a lovely trail, very easy to walk and the lake was beautiful to sit and eat lunch next to.
