“A relaxing run around Lake Katherine.”— Christine L
Drive in and park in the parking lot or bike in from the Cal-Sag Trail. Most people start and end the loop on the east side near the parking lot and nature center. The path is tree-lined, gravel, and fairly flat all around. You'll enjoy views of the Cal-Sag channel to the north and Lake Katherine all around. There are occasional benches for resting and quiet reflection.
Additional activities in the Lake Katherine Nature Center area include: canoeing, walks through the Children's Forest or gardens, and photobombing wedding photos. Visit lakekatherine.org/ for more information about the park.
