Lake View
Canyon Lake from the trail. Note the line of brush along the shore that mostly keeps the trail away from the water.

Miles Hiked: 6.34 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: Don't expect much shade here. Totaled almost 6.5 miles, some side trails could add more to that. Saw/heard at least 13 deer on the trail! Terrain is generally flat with the trail overgrown in some areas. Just follow the mowed path. Encountered only 1 other person on the trail, and he was on horseback.
