Recommend starting at the left entrance. Not too difficult but a good challenge if you aren't used to hiking. Mountain biking is allowed but can become very difficult with the steep curves and the vegetation.

Beautiful views once you get down to the bottom with a bench overlooking the lake. Can be slightly confusing at times due to multiple paths carved out. As long as you have a sense of direction though you should be fine. Quick and easy all together.

This trail is a good one with some amazing views. There are some steep parts. If take the trail on the left at the beginning the steep parts will be down hill. Right now there are tons of wildflowers in bloom. It is very pretty. I will definitely be doing this one again.

Weather was perfect when my family went on this hike so it wasn’t too hot (didn’t notice lack of shade), we didn’t come across any mud, and didn’t see any snakes. Wildflowers were blooming and the views of the lake were great. The trail is somewhat overgrown so we didn’t do the loop. There were some steep parts so it turned out to be a nice workout.

Beautiful and full of wildflowers! A wonderful sunrise hike this morning with amazing views and a lot of different birds. Heard a baby coyote calling out across the lake and spied some scat on the return trip. Would suggest leaving the smaller dogs at home and wearing waterproof boots... there is some tall grass and wildflowers, but as always some common sense and the right equipment makes all the difference. Making your way to the waters edge makes for some steep parts to traverse, but worth the trip. Definitely plenty of chances to rest and catch your breath and enjoy the beautiful scenery! A good camera and even some binoculars would be a great addition to the experience.

Challenging for short trail The trail goes: Established dirt/rock road Narrow grass maze Beach(rocks) Steep trek Uphill through tall grass(unestablished) Nice views Free Parking No shade Swimming(PFL) Unestablished (last 500ft.+/-,at the opening in the fence go right NOT left) No restrooms Brown foothills No bugs Not to be done with small kids I liked this one, nice little challenge if you don't mind stickers and walking on rocks. Definitely wouldn't do with my 3yo. Didn't see any snakes but it was very snakey in spots. I would recommend doing backwards(take entry point to the right.) -DB

Trail was not well marked. You need to take the upper part of the trail to and from. Do not take the full loop. Definitely need gators too. Just plain dumb luck we didn’t come across snakes on the unmarked portion of the trail.

Great view of Pine Flat Lake. It's a nice, easy hike. Not much to it, though.

The way out begins on a service road then turns into a narrower trail that leads to a bench with good views. The way back along the lakeside (if you choose to do the loop) is very hard to follow due to overgrowth. Not to difficult, but there is a dozen or so fallen trees on the trail you'll need to climb over.

4 stars for ease of getting there, views and getting to see my most favorite wildflower: Mariposa lily! This rating is not for the hike since it's more of a stroll.

Beautiful setting but Trail is not well maintained. Fallen trees and overgrowth causes one to depend on their sense of direction. Also not a great trail for dogs. Lots of high grass, fox tails and ticks. Never been bit but the dogs have had several :(

As the two star rating says, “Meh” and that’s about it.

Don’t bring your dog on this hike!!! Foxtails everywhere! I had to carry my dog the entire time. Also, the trail is very narrow and there was trees that covered the trail in case you lose it.

After the rain the trail is muddy, has many fallen trees, and cow manure is everywhere.

the scenery was pretty but the trail was boring and not worth the drive. it goes from a good wide trail then narrows to a very narrow and hard to walk trail that is practically covered with prickly plants

I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. The views were great and the trail is challenging enough to be a mild workout, but as others have said, it's very overgrown and difficult to walk on. if you had light pants it might be ok, but in shorts, ouch! I can deal with that part, but what annoyed me is the trail really is incomplete. I looked all around and could not find the start of the loop back, so I had to backtrack instead. Not the best trail but the views of the lake are lovely.

Not well maintained. Couldn't do the whole thing because the trail was not clearly marked. Could have been a really nice trail if it was kept better.

My dogs love this hike down to the lake for a swim. Several spur trails made by fisherpeeps and bovine. There are some pretty great views of Pine Flat Lake, as well as a bench about half way in to enjoy a break. This could be a good place to train for some backpacking outings because there is some decent elevation loss and gain during this out and back; mostly over long switchbacks, but there is a section that sometimes has a rope installed for ease of use, as the grade is not friendly. Watch for cowpies! Bass on p.w.'s.....

The trail is not maintained at all. It is very overgrown. Trails start and stop in many areas which makes it hard to know where you are going. Beautiful view of the lake from above. More of a rest stop. I would not recommended walking the trail.

The trail was really overgrown. I had to wing-it quite a bit. I don't mind going "off the beaten path," but it was tricky at times because I didn't know where I was stepping. Some really nice views, but I think it would have been a better experience if the trail was maintained.

Wish I would've taken a machete, it was very poorly maintained.

Trail was not maintained so we had to back track a couple of times. Some slopes had grass that was laying flat which made difficult to descend- glad we went up hill first because if we had traveled it the other direction we would not have been able to make it up those slopes. Trail needs some maintenance in order to be considered easy- over growth made thing more difficult- recommend the rating chafed to moderate. That said great views, tons of wild flowers n butterflies- this is a great time of year to go.

Beautiful mountains, and fantastic trails. Parking near the end of the reservoir near the river connected to it is great. A lot of awesome sights.
