About this Trail: Enjoy a leisurely hike along the lakeshore, stop for a swim at one of the swimming stops, or challenge yourself with one of the hillside trails. In the spring, experience the beauty of the Arrowleaf Balsamroot as the hillside explodes with brilliant yellow flowers. During the summer and fall, the delicate Mariposa Lily can be found, as well as the brittle Prickly Pear Cactus. Dogs are permitted on-leash only. Much of the hillside trail is exposed, so be sure to bring water and wear sunscreen during the hot summer months.
This park has 27.6 hectares of trails and it also has an accessible dock with a canoe/kayak launch, along with a dog beach and washrooms. Dogs are welcome along the trails, but they must be on-leash.
