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.
Great trail - super hot! Not too much shade but has a great views.
Awesome! The dogs got overheated so we had to carry them
