Great Trail! 25% shade. At mile 2.8 go right instead of left and you can fill up on water by the picnic tables. At mile 5.4 you can go down the road and go swimming! Great work out. Saw some deer.

Beautiful trail, and you can make a slight detour to go swimming at Madrone Point - definitely worthwhile.

Beautiful trail for hiking or trail running. A good amount of tree cover with fun single track and good amount of fire road which I did not mind since it's snake season. Easy access and scenic lake views. Passes through variety of foliage to include oaks (some poison), redwoods, and madrone. Not technical or extreme ups or downs but solid workout. I did it counter clockwise but if I do it again, I will try clockwise for both loops. I think will be easier to find trails and keep what I think was the prettiest area for last (but a climb out). Large parking lot and outhouse at trailhead. Bring $5 and pen for fee/ fee envelope. Trailheads for either direction are at the same spot in parking lot- counter clockwise starts on Dry Creek and heads down hill, and clockwise starts on No Name Trail and crosses the road. Note: You'll be on 1/2 Canoe and Outcrop Trails in the middle of the hike. Looking at the All Trails map and seeing the middle top of what looks like a heart on the left loop was confusing and actually on the road for more than it appeared, and could have taken a bit of the blue dash trail instead of back tracking on payment. Hard to explain but might make sense once you're out there. Hope you enjoy it!

Nice loop hike over 2 separate ridges. Be careful with heavy rain and storm crossings. One near the Lake on cove trail was big.
