Good hike to test out some new gear, nice views. Paid $6 for parking, forgot it was a charged location but luckily they accept card. Ran into a few park staff very friendly, will be returning.

Nice loop with not so hard huffing to do. The walk by the lake was nice - that is where you will find a couple of restrooms and benches to look over the water. This trail is a lot easier than the Squirrel Gulch hike. Nothing real steep and the views are stunning. Some wildlife including the same doe I spotted last month.

Partly cloudy but perfect MLK day hike. Many trail options. Well maintained with benches on hilltops to take a break and enjoy the scenery.
If you make it all the way you the lakeside, be prepared to hoof it back in a steady uphill climb back to the trial head. It’s worth it. Bring water.

Ridgeline was a fun a trail to hike, there were plenty of hills and some benches along the way to sit and gaze at the scenic view. Unfortunately while I did enjoy the view the whole area was clearly showing the effects of the drought as a majority of the lake was gone and the rolling green hills had become yellow. Although that might sound disappointing there are some cows along the trail to aw at and the hills are still just as high.

Lots of side trail options. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. Dogs are allowed off leash except in developed parts of the trail (which is only a tiny section along the lake)

I Like How For One My Dog Was Allowed Here, Even Though There Was A Small Fee Of $2 In Order For Him To Enter Along With Me . There Are Other Trails . They’re Open To Everything Relating To Go Out On The Water, Boats, Canoes, Nd Others I Don’t Know The Name Of . I Only Walked The Ridgeline Trail&I’m Satisfied With It. I Felt It The Next Day
