Lake · Views
The loop is almost entirely on trails, it starts at a beautiful temple and passes by a stone quarry. From there it is a relatively long climb on a doubletrack, but there are great views along the way. The second part is mostly down on a shady, comfortable doubletrack.
The climb at the beginning is quite long, so make sure to pace yourself.
You'll start at the parking lot of a beautiful temple. From there you take a concrete road for a short moment before turning onto a doubletrack dirt road. The views from hereon out can be really impressive, especially during sunrise or sunset times. The doubletrack keeps climbing steadily until you'll have to turn onto a singletrack. This part can be slightly overgrown but the section is not long. Then it is mostly downhill on a comfortable road, making for a nice and relaxed second part of the route. Just be careful to follow the route as there are many intersections with other trails.
Flora & Fauna
The area is quite well developed, so wildlife is limited. Nonetheless you may spot some beautiful butterflies, snakes or even eagles.
