Note: This trail was damaged in the Riverside fire, although it has had significant maintenance done to it. The unmaintained trail up to South Fork Mountain was significantly damaged in the fire, however this segment has been recently maintained so that it is now passable again.
A short trail that is family friendly but can get crowded in the summer. The distance from the lake to the summit of South Fork Mountain given in the Info Sheet is actually closer to three quarters of a mile. It is also a worthy destination.
There is no longer a picnic table at the lake.
