Closed Monday-Friday. They need staff on hand to “protect the area” in case anything were to happen. Curious if they hold your hand while you hike but I didn’t get the chance to ask him.

This is not the hike that is described here. the trails here are very limited. You can hike Wes about 1 mile in and the trails disappear. They are not maintained in the water level is very very low. I went bushwhacking for a while and turn around. I then drove over the dam on Oakvale Road to check out the Egret Trail on the south side of the lake. it is basically a service road. About a mile long and then it just ends. so I turned around and went back to the car. there are some nice rocks to climb on on the lake is very pretty. Some people were catching a few fish.

Nice views of the lake in the early morning. Easy walk, lots of shade and foliage.

I agree with the recent reviewers. It's a pretty area along the lake, but as far as walking/hiking goes, the trail is pretty nonexistent.

Although the area is pretty there isn't much of a trail that I could find according to this map. It is overgrown and not much of a path. This place would be good for a picnic/bbq instead

Overgrown & not well marked. Couldn't find the loop back.

FYI - This is called the Kumeyaay Trail on the North Side of the lake.

Great. Plenty of space on the trail. Lots of rattlesnakes and wildlife. That is the reason there are no dogs allowed. I see multiple snakes each hike in warmer months. Bring lots of water. Break ins at trail head near storage facility happen often. Don't leave anything in your car or park elsewhere.

I gave this hike a 5 star, because it's family friendly, very quiet, and has a beautiful landscape. The overlook is absolutely beautiful, and the trail is fairly easy. We also found a water well that is filled with water and rocks that is hidden under oak trees. I will definitely be back !

Great wooded hiking trail along the banks of the lake. Several good spots for fishing or even just taking in the view.
