Great for kids. The lake had recently killed a bunch of Carp in the lake, so there were 100’s of dead fish along the shore. Perfect for kids to explore and great views overall.

Great views of the lake! No steep ups or downs. There is a mountain lion warning at the beginning of the trail so be prepared. Took me 1.5 hrs to complete. Very peaceful and serene, nobody else was on the trail. Be sure to stop in at the ranger station and check out the little museum, awesome.

This is one of my favorite hikes. It is part of the Pacific Crest Trail running from the Mexico border to the Canadian border. While I haven't taken the long trek, we often hike out to the dam and then fish all day, working our way back on the Shoreline. While the lake level is really low, the trail itself is a great moderate hike. You can customize it by traveling the other trails as well. Wonderful scenery, very quiet and lots to explore.
