This is a pretty hike along the lake through east bay woodlands, but it's not as easy as its short distance and minimal elevation would imply. Much of the trail that hugs the lakeside is very rugged, with boulders, big roots, and steep slopes. It can be quite difficult for anyone with even slight mobility issues. One section was basically a six-inch ledge against a low cliff... one misstep and you're going swimming. Great fun for kids, dogs and the athletic, but not recommended otherwise.
