Trail Description:
This is a short wooded trail on the south side of Bon Tempe lake with enticing views of the lake as it meanders through the redwoods and Madrones. There were few flowers in bloom, but the scenery and occasional bird views made up for the loss. As this trail is only a mile and a half, a good addition might be a lake loop, starting with the "Sunnyside" trail in the cooler weather.
