Description

This trail starts from the northern trailhead by a small parking area north of Fountain Park. Lake Overlook Trail heads north, climbing a gentle slope on a very easy dirt trail with some small rocks scattered about. The trail has its ups and downs and switchbacks as it climbs through some developments. There is good scenery along the trail and even some geocaches. Once at the top, there are a few benches to sit on and rest to watch the fountain go off. The trail then descends another gentle slope through the developments and ends at the southern trailhead on Panorama Drive.

Flora & Fauna

There’s all types of bushes, trees, and cacti.
