Trail Notes:

The route is a paved trail, that runs between the Lake Chabot Marina parking lot, along the left side of the lake and past the damn to a picnic area. The round trip is a little over three miles and takes a little more than an hour to walk. It has some hills, but is mostly pretty easy. We would return the way we came and there are benches looking out over the water, so people can stop and rest and go at there own pace and still catch the rest of the group on their way back.
