Wonderful trail with beautiful vistas over New Melones. It's a little less than 3 miles and correctly rated as 'moderate' - there are a few inclines but nothing difficult. The trail does fork at least 3 times, but as long as you keep taking a left you'll be fine. Even if you do stray from this trail all of them lead back to the beginning. This will probably be a very warm hike in the summer, in spite of all the trees, so bring plenty of water. As previously stated, look for the trailhead at the entrance to the parking lot through a gate marked "authorized vehicles only". I went on a beautiful Sunday morning and didn't see any other hikers and 7-8 mountain bikers. Enjoy!
