Nice hike with kids and dogs. $5 fee per car since it is a national forest.

We are looking forward to going back when flowers are blooming. Nice map with good information.

The Loda Lake trail is not as long as mapped on app. This makes a loop with NCT and Birch Grove trail.

We hiked clockwise on Loda Lake trail then took connector to NCT. We then walked north on NCT for a mile. Returned and completed loop to Loda Lake for a total of 6 miles.

Seen a male rose-breasted Grosebeak, blue racer snake, and dog “found” 3 ticks.

This is a hidden gem with bathroom and new expanded parking lot with picnic tables and shelter.

Loda Lake is a great trail for nature walks, the guided wildflower trails, and a historic heritage trail. The map on this app shows more land than is really there at the wildflower sanctuary.

Great, easy trail. Very enjoyable. Thanks to all who preserve and share it with others.

This trail links up with the Birch Grove Trail loop, which also links up with the NCT for a total of about 11 miles. Went in late October, great day trip.
