They closed down the parking lot years ago so park outside the main gate entrance. You can make a loop on Friday thru Sunday. The rest of the week the main gate is locked and it's still a nice out and back.

Nice easy trail. Best to go in the morning, as it can get warm. Even if the temperature reading is not high, the sun feels hotter b/c of the altitude gain compared to San Diego.
I gave it 3 stars b/c there is nothing remarkable about this trail, it's just a leisurely walk on flat pavement.

I live a few minutes from here and love walking the road to the camp ground. It's nice and relaxing. Great views of the lake and mountains in the distance! :)

You can't walk/jog/run with your dog, even on a 6' leash!

One of my favorite walks that's easy and has some shade. The lake is beautiful and the bird life is abundant. They closed down the parking lot years ago so park outside the main gate entrance. You can make a loop on Friday thru Sunday. The rest of the week the main gate is locked and it's still a nice out and back.

This trail is a loop if you continue along the road after it closes to vehicles. you have a view of the lake for most of the hike, which is beautiful and peaceful.
