Trail Description:

Smittle Creek is a charming oak woodland lagoon trail on the western shore of Lake Berryessa with amazing views of the inlets, islands and lake. It's a 2.6 mile trail that starts from the Coyote Knolls parking lot of the Oak Shores Park and goes up to the Smittle Creek Park. About 30% of the trail is shaded, and it's also relatively level. Summer temperatures can get hot so October to May are the times to go.
