I love this lake. Sweet tree you can jump out of right off the trail. Definitely will return.

Fantastic trail to take the younger kiddos. We saw deer, turtles, ducks, geese, and an abundance of squirrels. There are trail markers with info of the local flora and fauna for the older kids to discover. Remember to keep a quiet voice as there are always people fishing the banks of the Mokolumne River and Pigs Lake.

Run here all time, as it’s the only nature trail in Lodi. It’s good and shaded for when it gets hot in the summer, nice views of the Moke. Wish it were longer!

Very nice, lots of squirrels. Great for walking children in strollers. Be a great place for a birthday party or just to hike around with friends.

Trail was well kept and good trail markers to point out and inform hikers about local wildlife and plant life. Great for kids. Right in town for a “quick” nature adventure or every day run

Fairly easy, nice in the summer / fall you have access to the sandbar as well as some little nooks to get into the water, later in the day the deer are also out and extremely friendly!

I visit this trail a lot, since I'm local. Very relaxing and easy. I like picking the blackberries when the season is in! Foresty and shady.

If you're looking for a shady run on a dirt trail then this is it. Park on Laurel street and head towards the entrance. This trail is essentially laid out as an infinity loop. 3 places to start from and they all bring you back to Point A. All in all you have dirt trail for 2/3 of the trail. The center trail is asphalt and you'll be running through a shady grove, next to small ponds, creeks as well as the impressive Mokelumne River. Small markers for wildlife viewing. Doing all 3 sections the trail is 1.8 miles. Flat fast and fun terrain.

As an 19 yr old I owned a mobile home on the other side of the lake in Woodbridge. We had our own little dock and swimming area in the section that feeds the lake from the river. I hiked everywhere there that was possible. We used to water ski in the lake as well. If i remember right they only allowed water skiing friday afternoon for a couple of hours

A lovely walk for the whole family. The kids enjoyed watching the squirrels run from tree to tree gathering acorns, and although we didn't see the deer that come to graze in the field during the evening, evidence was strong they had been there. The surrounding brush didn't seem as lush as it normally does, a lot of large trees had been cut down or removed. The trail was quite busy, even for a Saturday morning. people were friendly and everyone makes way for the children who are excited and ready to explore! If it's a short, easy walk your looking for than the Lodi Lake Nature Trail is perfect for you!

Just clarifying dog policy. Dogs are okay on leash by the park, but dogs are not allowed on the nature trail.

It was a little difficult to find, path starts in the nature area. Very nice walk, I had no idea that the river was this close to the city!
