Overview

This was my first trail experience in the region. I was instantly captivated by the lack of other people. It was quiet and peaceful. I had an amazing day along the shore of this unique lake. It sits at the convergence of pine forests and the great sage-steppe. There is no other place like it.

Description

This path rolls along the shore of a unique, natural lake. It is the second largest natural lake completely in California. You'll enjoy the sound of the wind through the pines as you take in the scenery and wildlife. Be sure to bring a fishing pole and license if you enjoy fishing. The Eagle Lake Trout is a hearty subspecies of the Rainbow Trout.
