Beautiful trail with great views of the lake and nicely shaded. A little difficult to track the beginning of the trail but doable with using the all trails map and some spotty cell service. There's a great bench spot for a picnic not far from the end overlooking the lake. Bonus that you can bring dogs. Plenty of parking in October though I imagine it can get more crowded in the summer.

Beautiful views. Trail not well maintained. We slipped several times due to roughness.

Really liked this hike. Fairly easy to find trail head. Trail in good condition. Most of elevation gain in first few miles. Amazing views. I extended hike at Boar Scat Loop. Had problems finding the trail at the end. Keeping it from a 6 Star - some Horse stuff on trail but not too bad

Nice route. Remember to buy a parking pass from the visitor center before hiking.

This trail has beautiful wooded forests of madrones, lakefront, climbs to stunning views and wildflowers galore. We'll be back!

Went there in the summer of 2015. A lot of up hill ridding with Temperatures in the 90s. I thought we would be able to go swimming in the lake from the trail. The shore had thick deep clay which made getting into the water impossible. Not a fun day. Maybe if it wasn't as hot and if California wasn't in a drought things would have been different.
