Located on the flanks of the hot, dry Livermore Valley, Lake Del Valle is an artificial impoundment on Arroyo del Valle, and the lake's surrounding parklands contain many hiking trails, including connectors to the Ohlone Wilderness Regional Trail. This out-and-back explores a combination of level shoreline, oak woodland, and hilly uplands.

It’s a pretty trail, but not a lot of shade, any time of the year but summer. Saw a lot of wild life, deer, huge birds (careful with small dogs) we had two and the bird kept circling us and at one point came so close to the grown it scared us. We picked up our dogs until it went away. We also saw wild turkeys and cows. Spectacular views!

Great feeling of being in the mountains. Lost of wildlife to be seen. From first rain in Oct till about April it is a pretty spot with steep hills and green slopes. enough trees to add additional interest. It is busy for first couple of miles but thins out after that. There is a water tower about 3.3 miles in at the top of a hill. That is a great spot for lunch and even a good spot to turn around.

Did this trail a long time ago with a slower hiker friend. The only difference is we added the loop on the end that you see on the map to make it about 10 miles. We did the hike on a dry, mellow Jan day. There's a lot of wildlife present away from summer. We saw deer, a coyote and a lot of different types of waterfowl and hawks and a golden eagle. It's a good, wide trail and a lot of it is lakeside with nice views. We also saw several fish caught from the rental boats that day.
