A very nice little trail. I run the .8 mile loop. It's a well maintained dirt trail with adequate parking and relatively clean restrooms. There's also a ton of wildlife. I've seen fish, ducks, turtles and geese.

This short path is closed off, do the path that goes around the mountain. It’s super friendly for family time. Saw lots of bike people but some dogs as well.

I really enjoyed it. I stayed close to the lake due to loving the scenery. I enjoy being in family oriented places so this was enjoyable seeing families together. Nice for a beginner getting into fitness. Not that rocky. I still busted a little sweat.

The trail reopened. May 16th. Parking is at 50%

only a few spots of elevation change, nothing overly strenuous, very pretty chapperal and scrub environment.

I have been accessing Chollas Lake for 40 years with my kids, grandkids and now just myself to walk and enjoy the lake. I am so happy that it is open again but am very concerned with the public that has been accessing the park. The mask rule is not being followed. I wear my mask to protect YOU....The mask that you wear protect Me. I am 70 years old and should be able to get out, get some exercise and fresh air. The last 4 days the gate on Chollas PKWY is open but there is not one ranger or staff to monitor. The City waterworks trucks were there yesterday for at least 2 hours with two trucks 5 staff and only one City worker wearing a mask. Please, please, please, monitor and follow the rules. If you don't agree that you need to wear a mask I understand but don't access areas that require masks. Budget cuts aside if the park is open there needs to be someone there to monitor activity. People were playing basketball, some families had taken off the caution tape and were letting their kids play on the equipment.

Nice easy trail for walking or running. Good for kids as well as dogs, the main trail is a little under a mile long but they have other trails passage ways to add a little distance. Wildlife around all in all a decent hike. Beware sometimes the geese will attack.

Not many hikers out on this trail but enough to not feel like you are alone. Starts in a residential area. Multiple inclines, up and down, some rocky.

Nice trail and views. Busy. Minus a star for their being motorized traffic allowed for most of the trail.

I was running alone, but it's a great place to bring a dog and take a walk. there are a lot of cute ducks, too.
