Lake Chabot is a local fave. Unfortunately after this crazy winter you can't do the full loop. What you can do is go as far as you can and then wander upwards through the state campsite slightly bewildered (stick to the Lake Chabot bike loop) and then find the Live Oak Trail to get back down. And when I say down... it's straight down. It was a boggling experience BUT! There is a killer view of the lake if you persevere! You got this.
