FishingGreat!

Great hike with very little traffic even on a sunny Saturday morning. I just hiked it on November 28th, 2020 and the trail was not hurt by the last fires in the area. no fire damage visible at all on the trail. A good hike to take on cooler days, as this is a very sunny trail with patches of shade. I would not recommend this trail on a hot day unless you are going early in the morning.

Lots of uphill either way. Great cool hike in the fall. Lots of fun animal tracks and nature. No water and lots of ticks.

We liked going counterclock once at 1/2 Canoe.. that is gradual downhill and short steep uphill to Bummer Peak. Picnic tables under oak trees about 2/3 way up is a great rest stop

Well marked, water access (didn’t see trail to water), gradual descent one direction, shorter steeper ascent going back. Choose either direction. We left fire road to North Ridge Trail for last mile or so.

Great trail! We saw a small red bellied snake, red tail hawk hunting in the large fields, stopped at the lake for a dip and watched a huge fish breach the water. Lots of scat and animal prints on the trail. We hiked it mid April and the flowers were blossoming and bright. The trail ends with a pretty big up hill hike with no shade. Bring a fair amount of water and sunscreen. I got crispy.

HikingFeeWashed out

Beautiful views, trees, lake, and birds, Horses have put some big holes in the mud, there is just room to step around. My Garmin measured 5.1 miles, so did AllTrails, as did my wife’s Apple watch. However the ascent is about 1200 feet. Recommend it.

FeeNo shade

I walked this trail on a warm sunny day in January - great hike! Here are a couple of tips: - If you use the car park at the beginning of No Name Trail (which is the place the GPS will map you to) there is a $5 parking fee. Bring your Sonoma County Parks Pass! -No matter if you take this trail clockwise or counter clockwise there will be a portion of the trail that involves a lot of uphill walking so be prepared for that. -Not a lot of shade. I would NOT recommend hiking this trail in the middle of summer. Go in the cooler months instead.

We did this and added on the 1.2 mile boar scat trail for about 6 miles total. Did the look counter clockwise. Strenuous hill action which we were all feeling the next day. Great views and scenery throughout above the lake. Highly recommended.

In reality the trail is about 6.3 miles long. We spent about 3.5 hours out there including a dip in the lake and took our friend’s dog. the first part of the hike was VERY warm without a lot of tree cover and 90* out. We went right at the trailhead to get the lake on towards the end of the hike. Very nice trail with great signage and super engaging.

First time on the trail and I like it for a short hike. Not much tree coverage, so in the summer time it will be hot, but you can cool off in the lake about half way through as the trail drops down to the shore. Lots of intersecting trails to explore in this area. I'll be back!

Beautiful loop trail, well marked, with ample opportunities for additional loops to extend the hike. Not many people on it! A lot of vinegar weed (Trichostema Lanceolatum), a very pungently aromatic herb used by indigenous populations for medicinal purposes. Easy to access with moderate climbs.
