Nice long loop - start early morning if it is hot. Entire trail took 3.5 hours with one pit stop at the aquatic center. There are 3 slide areas south of Negro Bar that have have been traversed so many times there is a path over/around each area.

Started at the aquatic center and checked out the rowing facilities. Took the North trail out all the way to Old Fiolsom, grabbed lunch at the Hacienda and headed back on the south trail side which has well groomed walking trails separate from the bike trail. Lots of places to access the water. It's Lakeside trails for walking almost the whole trip. Beautiful!

Great Sunday walk around the lake. Saw two bald eagles & some deer. Had to climb over a rockslide at one point, but for the most party was easy walking.
