Great acclimation hike mostly in shade with great views of Mt. Shasta.

Very dry, dusty hike on a wide, dirt road with limited views of Shasta or anything else. Not recommended. There’s much better hiking nearby.

Nice views in few parts of the hike. Doing the entire loop is kind of boring. Great views of Mt Shasta in a few parts.

Lovely views and little development. The trail is easy to follow yet offers several short spurs down closer to the water. Great walk if you’re looking to avoid elevation!

Fantastic trail! Great views, well maintained. Bridges installed today, though not in time for me; had to wade across while trail crew was working on bridge installation.

no bridge yet, but possible rock hopping

Awesome trail! Be careful and make sure that the bridges are installed on the west side. There are no warnings.

Shady, easy trail. Pretty views of the lake. I don't like the area near the resort or the road. Saw another person every few minutes.

Beautiful scenery . Went on a cool, sunny day in the fall. Well marked trail except for in the campground. Had to use All Trails map to get us back on track a few times there.

Trail best for fatter tire bikes. We had to walk in a few places. Lots of vistas. On Sept 11 we only saw a handful of people on the trail.

Awesome easy hike around lake sis. Had to get off the trail quite a bit to stay near the water, so it ended up being almost 8 miles for us.

Great hike for our first time using a child hiking pack with our 13 month old. We counted 7.0 miles because we got a little off the path at the end near the camping grounds and it took us around 3 hours to complete (with a few snack breaks too). Will definitely do it again!

Easy, flat. Prettier view is taking a boat or kayak around the lake, but this is also pretty fantastic for taking a leisurely stroll around.

My only beef is the fact that you couldn't cross over where the Sacramento River is flowing into the lake. So currently, there is no way around the whole trail. If you're going to do it while the river is up, just stay to the right of the marina. Otherwise, you're not going to get very far. It was also cold when we went, so that's why we were not going to walk through the river to get to the other side. If it is warm enough, and you are willing to take your shoes off, would probably be quite refreshing.

Can't really complain about the river flowing, though, considering the drought we've had for years. So, I'll take it! Just a warning to others, though, try to stay to the right of the marina if Lake is at capacity.

Wonderful. 6.8 mile scenic trail around the entire lake. Takes about 2 - 2.5 hours to complete. Very easy. Dogs love it.

Fun lake trail not too many people. Its just a chill ride, run, or walk around the lake. It's on a dirt trail nothing extreme or hard nice and clean.
