  • Beautiful place for a hike. Nice clean area with beautiful views. Generally very safe, but always take precautions wherever you go. It is especially wonderful on warm summer days.

  • No cellphone signal while you get to enjoy the views and a walk around the lake. Quite few butterflies and a very sunny day made of this spot a great place to enjoy nature.

  • Nice quick stop for the small hills in the area. Don't park in the lower area without a handicap permit. The entire parking lot there apparently is handicap only. Learned the hard way at dusk during a quick 15 minute walk from the empty lot with zero other people in the park. The lack of people was the best part! haha
  • The trails are short and family friendly. Bathrooms are clean, accessible, and well stocked with toilet paper and hand sanitizer. The parking lot is big and free. You can often see people riding their horses on the trails. It’s rarely busy. It’s a gem in the Bay Area.
