A paved trail that follows along the shoreline of Lower Crystal Springs Reservoir. Take the trail on the perimeter of the reservoir, return via the way you came.

A long but nice trail. I walked from the north trailhead, close to the San Andreas Lake. After crossing a bridge to the south of San Andreas Lake, the trail leads deeply into woods until Lower Crystal Springs Reservoir shows up, where the space becomes open again. The entire trail is a paved road, so there were lots of bikers, joggers and hikers. The southern part of this trail resembles the northern part of San Andreas Lake Trail. Some deers can be seen busy feeding themselves. It's a pleasant experience.

I love this trail! It has a beautiful view of the lower crystal springs reservoir, and you can frequently spot some deer. It's good for walking, biking, kids, and running (which is what I use it for). This trail has half mile (.5) marks as you go. So you can run without a GPS tracker.

-No dogs allowed

-There are a few bathrooms on the trail (at the entrance and near the half mile mark).

-There is a designated parking area. It does get busy but you can park along the side of the road.
