The purpose of this hike is to see the nesting bald eagles on the opposite shore of the Lake just past the 3 mile mark. The trail is mostly sun. We climb a 500 foot hill right at the start so we will climb slowly. The views from the top are magnificent. We eventually drop down to lake level. My intention is to make this a 6 to 8 mile hike. Elevation gain is about 1,000 ft. It is dog friendly. One picnic table and Porta Potty at the parking lot. The parking machine hasn't worked in years. Bring singles just in case.Contact: Andrew Kincaid

Directions: 580 towards Livermore. Take Portola Ave exit. Drive SE on Portola Ave and turn right on North L Street. After crossing First St., North L St. becomes South L St. and then Arroyo Road. Continue on Arroyo Road past Sycamore Grove and the US Veterans Admin Hospital, all the way to the end. The staging area is on the left. It is $6 to park in the staging area, but you can park in other areas up the road if you are willing to walk a bit. Apparently there is no parking on Arroyo Road.
