This is great for a quick flat run if you just want to get your distance in. You also have several other options if you want to challenge yourself and take another trail with incline.

Not a bad hike at all, trails are nice, views are scenic. Good starter trail.

Nice, easy stroll. Watch out for disk golfers, they don't always call "fore".
Take extra time at the grove at the bottom of the hill, by the freeway to take in the cool shade.
Keen eyes around the lagoon will spot turtles, frogs, toads, beaver and otter in addition to waterfowl and raptors.

Gets busy on weekends. Kiosk is currently closed so parking is free until the city gets new permit machines.

Hiking is a loose term, very loose. Its a stroll...If you have little kids part of this trail is ok, but most of it is actually on the road so be careful. I would say little kids under 5 might enjoy a 10 minute portion of it when the sun isn't hot. I wouldn't drive more than 15 minutes for it. I was positive enough about it until I discovered most of the walk was going to be on the road. We had to dodge cars a lot. I would skip it and I definitely wouldn't pay a fee for it.

Enjoyed a nice stroll around the lake!

Wonderful 2.5 mile walking trail around the lake. Beautiful at sunset and lots of geese & duck to watch. Well kept, clean Trail. Looks like there’s a great frisbee disc course, saw a few groups playing. Only negative thing I’d say is that sound of people flying their drones. They’re not too loud but just annoying. Loved this park!

Well, it's better than no trail. But this trail is very close to a busy highway and the only way to escape the constant loud sound of cars is to wear ear plugs or listen to music. So i definitely don't consider this a relaxing, mind clearing hike. There are some nice things like the little redwood grove. But it's tiny. There's a lake which is cool. But again, the sound of the highway is ridiculous. I honestly feel that if it wasn't for the d*** highway right next to the entire trail it could be a lot nicer. But that's not the reality.
Also if you want to walk along the lake be ready to dodge tons and tons of goose poo. Cool to see gooses. But man do they poo all over the place!

I keep my horse here and was attacked by a Pit Bull that jumped out of the dog park. Everyone who uses this park should BEWARE, that fence is not high enough to keep dogs in, or out of, that park. There are people that run pit bulls off leash at sunrise and sunset. I've received emails and testimonies from witnesses to all sorts of dog attacks on horses and other dogs in Lagoon Valley.

Horseback riders, beware, the bridge over the lake dam is not maintained, and in poor shape. It's also very narrow. Don't let horses, people or pets in the bacteria infested water. This is sadly common in small lakes.

Few riders from the near by barn venture here. :'( Avoid the drug needle littered trail that goes through the upper parking lot. Sounds great doesn't it?

The swing is on the hill. Don't expect to find it in this ground level trail.

Nice stroll around the lake.

This park is one stop shopping: nice long stroll around the lake for relaxation or hit the hills for a workout, throw frisbee for the dog & let him have a swim & finish the day with a nap under a shade tree

I've run the trails just about every morning for years. The hills take on different looks all year long. Each season reflects a beautiful aspect of these hills. Unfortunately there are those that litter and irresponsible dog owners that do not pick up after their animals or keep them leased.

Great training grounds. Moderate hike. Dog friendly. At the top you see views of Lagoon Valley.. Travis Air Force Base.. And Vacaville Prison.

I enjoy going here. Very open trails. So steep elevations but not hard. Easy to get to for something close to home.

Took the dogs with us and they had a blast. We let them go swimming and they had a great time. the walk around the lake is best right in the morning when the bugs aren't out to bad.

The lake was all dried out. But nice little hike of you want to see some hills for once a while since Davis is pretty flat.

This was my first hike in several years. We didn't go around the reservoir but chose a paved path along the hillside. The path had benches for resting, huge plus. Dogs are welcome. As my skills improve this well be a place to visit again and take one of the more challenging trails.

Great place to hike, nice and easy for younger hikers. Very easy to access and has something for everyone.

Beautiful view, family friendly, pets allowed, accessible restroom at the entrance of the trail.

Verry nice climb to a beautiful view of the Vaca valley and beyond! The nicest aspect of this trail us that you can make it ad challenging or as easy as you would like and it's great for running. Beware: very little shade.
