This is 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.

Very easy stroll on meandering, lightly undulating paved paths which offers pleasant views along the way. It can get very busy on weekends.

is a easy trail to easy that makes it a little bowring but wen you get to the end it makes it worth to bad that in the first part you are not to near the water like in the end.

This is a great path if you are walking with a stroller or bringing along a young child who is riding their bike. Not really a hike. Paved and has fences along the path. Really pretty view of the reservoir.

This trail is a great confidence builder, I like to hit the hill halfway.. for being 12 miles it's really pretty pleasant.

Paved trail where you follow the water's edge. It gets busy as the day continues but was easy and beautiful! I would highly recommend this for all levels.

Probably my favorite place on earth for biking. Try to catch it early or on a weekday as it is very crowded on weekends.

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.
