When we first drove in it didn’t seem like we should even be there but once we reached the trailhead I felt a lot better about the run. Take both the east and west loops for the full 3 miles. Views were amazing and it was very quiet and secluded. Did NOT see any mountain lions (thankfully). Overall a pretty fun trail.

I did this for the Climax canyon 5k trail run. Great scenery along the KT boundary. We saw a mountain lion. beautiful trail.

beautiful hike. We did the whole loop, which someone else noted was about 6.7 miles. Trail was clear, but, while marked, it was a little hard to know which part you were on at times. There was a parking fee. I think it was $3.

Amazing! Loved the hike!!

This map is complete, it's actually a 6.75 mile loop trail. Park at the tail head, hike down the wide road on the southwest side of the lake, then take a left at the sign pointing towards the camp ground, this takes you all the way around

As a frequent trail runner I can say that I enjoyed running around Lake Maloya and part of the Segerstrom trail. If I had downloaded the map in the link I could have enjoyed many more miles of trail running. However, I relied on a picture I took of the trail map at the entrance to the park and this turned out to be a little confusing as I had difficulty finding trail-heads and following the trails (that were not marked very well). All in all the trail system was nice and offered a nice view of the lake, water fowl and a chance encounter a herd of mule deer. For March the snow and ice made the trail very muddy in spots, but I expected this so do not see it as a negative. Finally, I will make sure to return and explore more of the Little Horse Mesa Loop verses veering off course and running around the lake.
