  • It was snowing when we went so we gave up part way around the lake for a hike, but what a beautiful and peaceful area with plenty of parking and places for picnics 
  • The lakeside is very peaceful and serene. The water is absolutely clear and still. Surrounded by high ground on all sides, the place is quiet even for North Cal. Good spot for sunsets too. 
  • Fun, easy hike. Beautiful scenery! The fish were lined up at the bridge, but not biting when we went down to the lake! Still fun!
