The hike

This hike begins on the rim trail, leads to the big oak trail, then finishes on the paved lakeside trail. When finishing up on the lakeside trail hikers will begin to share the path with cyclists.

The trail: Lafayette Reservoir Rim, Big Oak, and Lakeside Nature Trail Loop

We'll hike this 2.6-mile loop trail near Lafayette, California. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 1 h 12 min to complete. This trail is great for hiking and running, and it's unlikely you'll encounter many other people while exploring.

Dogs are welcome and must be on a leash.

The trail may be muddy and slippery after the rains.
