Be prepared for a lot of poison oak everywhere! Pretty views of the lake and still many wildflowers are about.

It’s a relatively flat route, really nice views of the lake and surrounding hills!

I believe this is the Davis Gulch Trail now. Nice very moderate hike. Lots of poison oak though.

Great trail for hiking with dogs, there are 2 easy spots to access the lake.

The trail was well groomed and pleasant to hike. There were some narrow steep sections but nothing that would be considered hard. I recommend that this trail be taken in the spring, as there would be some nice creeks running from runoff at that time.
