Hiked the around the whole lake, it was beautiful. Not to strenuous, we started on the left side by the bathrooms/Marina and would do that again. It was shady and the incline was not to bad.
Going the other way we would of been in the sun during a steep dirt trail portion. Started at 8:30am done by 1:30pm. Stopped after mile 5 or so, found a nice bench with a view for lunch.

Beautiful! We just did 1.5 miles on the left side of the loop and then back. Saw four deer! Nice and shady Lakeside hike. Loved it!

I enjoyed this hike. It starts off with about two miles of pavement, then goes to about the off-road, and then ends up with the two miles of pavement.

Depending on the time of day, and the time of week it can get busy here, but the trails are well maintained, and the views are beautiful.

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.

This trail is not closed. There's an area that is closed and that's the part were you turn back around. However, there is a really steap hill that is about a mile long, that is a challenge to walk up, but I made it so you can to. You do feel out of breath and your legs, and thighs are burning.

Liked the trail very much, the right side leads to a mountain, left side is relatively flat and a nice stroll around the lake.
