Wrong address. It sends you to someone’s house. Lame.

Wild horse trail Monday morning beautiful an quiet ...the only person out here...I'm about 1 mile from Crosleys saddle⛅️

5 Stars! Stayed at Campsite then in morning went on hiking trail.. very convenient location to spend the night at.. Hike was absolutlely beautiful!! There were a lot of shady spots! Beautiful views of the lake..and rolling mountains.. very interesting views.. some of dark green mountains some trails with a fall theme.. tons of pretty leaves.. some of the way high yellow grass.. big rocks.. it just kept changing.. loved it!! only downfall is the end of trail... absolutley nothing.. just a spot in the middle of nowhere.. nothing to look at nothing to see... the best parts are when your hiking.. trails are in good condition.. cant wait to do it again!

This is not a 'real' trail to grab in all the beautiful things lol. Lots of cyclists!! More like a race track than anything. I would definitely use this as a conditioning hike. It can be as easy or as difficult as you want to make it...depending on what it is you do. Outside of that...it was ok.

Great Challenge of a hike. Bring Hedge clippers though and if you look it has amazing sites. You can even see the pacific half way through the loop.

It’s a great lil doable simple path around a beautiful lake and surrounding area! Sunsets are beautiful there!
Great for beginners and little ones!

This is a beautiful spot, but I agree with the majority - this is not a trail in the slightest. If you’re looking for a casual stroll or are in need of something very light duty, this is it. I highly recommend a sunset walk here. Looking west from the far side of the lake, after the sun has set behind the hills is quite the sight. Dogs are welcome and there are bag stations throughout - please be a good citizen and dog owner and be sure to pick up after your pets!
There is also a playground on the “trail” for the little ones to expend their excess energy.

Trail was not marked. Nobody knew where to go. Terrible!! I do not recommend.

Something to do while camping. Very easy - starts at the camp ground (B) and ends at the water. Out and back! Did I mention this was very easy.
