I visit this trail a lot, since I'm local. Very relaxing and easy. I like picking the blackberries when the season is in! Foresty and shady.

Great view, short and easy trails for all ages.

Cute little nature walk...

Nice, short, easy trail. It's closed right now until second week of June I believe.

If you're looking for a shady run on a dirt trail then this is it. Park on Laurel street and head towards the entrance. This trail is essentially laid out as an infinity loop. 3 places to start from and they all bring you back to Point A. All in all you have dirt trail for 2/3 of the trail. The center trail is asphalt and you'll be running through a shady grove, next to small ponds, creeks as well as the impressive Mokelumne River. Small markers for wildlife viewing. Doing all 3 sections the trail is 1.8 miles. Flat fast and fun terrain.

So just went hiking here. Great shaded areas through the forest of trees but lake is very dirty. trail is well maked.

Great for a family outing. Easy hike.

As an 19 yr old I owned a mobile home on the other side of the lake in Woodbridge. We had our own little dock and swimming area in the section that feeds the lake from the river. I hiked everywhere there that was possible. We used to water ski in the lake as well. If i remember right they only allowed water skiing friday afternoon for a couple of hours

A lovely walk for the whole family. The kids enjoyed watching the squirrels run from tree to tree gathering acorns, and although we didn't see the deer that come to graze in the field during the evening, evidence was strong they had been there. The surrounding brush didn't seem as lush as it normally does, a lot of large trees had been cut down or removed. The trail was quite busy, even for a Saturday morning. people were friendly and everyone makes way for the children who are excited and ready to explore! If it's a short, easy walk your looking for than the Lodi Lake Nature Trail is perfect for you!

it nices kid friendly

Just clarifying dog policy. Dogs are okay on leash by the park, but dogs are not allowed on the nature trail.

It was a little difficult to find, path starts in the nature area. Very nice walk, I had no idea that the river was this close to the city!
