Distance: 8.00 Miles
Hiked this trail today in beautiful weather (80 degrees, sunny), starting from Cedar Breaks Park. Went all the way out to the 4 mile marker and then headed back, arriving in the parking lot at 7pm. This is a beautiful trail that mostly hugs the shoreline, and at one point we actually witnessed people jumping from one of the cliffs into the lake! Our only complaint about hiking the trial today was the huge number of caterpillars hanging from silk over the trail. It was impossible to avoid running into these, and we must have each brushed off over 100 of them by the time we were through with our hike. Also, be careful of the cacti that encroach upon the trial, especially between miles 3 and 4, as we both discovered brushing against one can be quite painful.
We only saw roughly ten other people during our four hour hike, but the proximity to the lake means you're going to hear lots of boats at full throttle, and of course people whooping it up, especially on nice weekends such as this one. I look forward to traversing more of this trail (would be great to backpack the entire length over a weekend), as well as trying some mountain biking on the northern trails.
