Easy in the sense that it's mostly flat but narrow trail and overgrown. start of the trail not clearly marked.

Not a loop. You can't cross over the Dam. Still a good hike w the family.

This trail is great for exploring children! There are so many things for them to pick up and see. Park outside by the Daley Ranch parking lot to avoid the entrance fee. From there, it's only a short walk to the edge of the lake.

Unless you wish to become a guest of the state, this is not a loop trail. You cannot cross the dam
