My husband and I live near this park and hike here occasionally, when we want a nice morning hike.  We have ever had a map of the trails- and we have tried new paths each time we come.  It is a nice, easy hike and there are only a few people.  Most often we would run into other people biking the trails.  On the main trail we did not find much shade, and turned around- as we always take our toddler (in a toddler backpack) and she was getting fussy.  As soon as it cools down we will be going back to hike more of the main trail.   If you cross the street at the trail head there is another trail that meanders along the trail and eventually down to the lake.  We hiked this and then followed the beach back to the parks enterence.  We let the dogs off the leash and it was truly enjoyable.
