Great long hike for you & the dogs. Water close all trail long, they'll run wild. Good cold weather hike.

Great spring hike. Wildflowers change weekly. There is not a lot of shade due to fires a few years back. Poison oak is present, but avoidable.

Three of us hiked this today. The trail was easy, with some moderate uphill climbs. Some have reported poison oak along the trail, but it was not an issue at this time of year for us. We parked where the trail crosses the road. It's an enjoyable hike!

I worked in this area as a trail maintenance worker. I loved every day that I worked on this trail. just a couple years ago was manicured for a few miles by good people so I'm sure it is pretty maintained in most spots, a walk that wouldn't disappoint.

Trail is overgrown with poison oak and other brush about a mile in from the boat ramp all the way to the top. Trail should be closed. It is hazardous and dangerous.

It's full of poison oak, it is well maintained but about 1.5 miles in it's everywhere

I hiked this trail in the heat of summer. Buut having the lake so close made it nice. Take a dip if you get too hot!

Easy hike, near the lake (when the level is up). Look for a small sign and pull out on the left hand side of the road to find the start.

The trail head is at the Jones Valley parking area. It is a loop, beginning and ending there. It does cross the road at one point but is easily visible on the other side.
