There is a trail across from the lake from the main road with all the construction with a gate and small parking. Follow the signs... It takes you uphill to a bench to have an overall view of the lake. Very narrow dirt trail, pretty easy. This lake was alright.

This is a scenic lake, but calling it a trail is misleading. There is no trail. It's just a public lake/beach area. You can drive your vehicle directly on to the beach. Several people had campers parked.

Very disappointed, no shade, no trail. Just desert sand, dirt, lake view. Off road vehicle area, no real trail.

I don't know what happened but when I tried to get into this place, the road was blocked. I probably made a wrong turn or came in a different way Got into the lake from a place farther up. There were tons of people there labor day weekend as expected. The lake really smelled and there was broken glass everywhere. I didn't stay for long and didn't let my dog into the water. It was really hot. Tons of people jetskiing and out on boats fishing.

Nice mountain reservoir, but it's obvious the drought has impacted the area. The lake is low, but it still offers fishing and nice vistas. To me, the real recreating is in the surrounding area.
