A very easy paved path that follows the shoreline of Lake Chabot. It also connects to the West Shore trail for additional length if desired.

Well maintained trail around a scenic fishing lake. Lots of use but still a few nice secluded stretches.

Late summer the lake gets a little stagnant and can smell a little.

This is a very easy trail although marked easy. Usually, easy as marked by AllTrails is moderate and moderate is hard. It is a paved trail for about 1.5 miles and there's a spectacular view of the lake around for a mile. Then the view turns into marshland for a half mile and through woods the next half mile as you loop around the hill. As we had planned a shorter hike today, we just hiked back out to complete a 4 mile hike. There are trails cutting across to the other side of the hill and we plan to take up those trails on our next visit.

We hiked along the lake shore for 9 miles, starting from east shore trail and finishing in west shore. Most part is nicely shaded. The elevation gain is minimum and the length is OK.
