Route Description for Lake Balboa Trail
Whether you plan on walking the trail, taking a paddle boat for a spin, or simply want to sit and enjoy a nice picnic, an afternoon at Lake Balboa will be one well spent!
If you do choose to explore the area on foot, you can do so in either direction. For the purpose of this guide we chose to complete a clockwise loop.
Setting out from the parking lot, you will head to the west until you meet the water’s edge, at which point you can take your time meandering around the calm waters of the lake. After gazing out at the ducks and enjoying the peaceful setting, you will arrive back at the trailhead before you even know it!
Getting to the Lake Balboa Trail Trailhead
The trailhead for this adventure can be found at the parking lot next to the boat rental shop at Lake Balboa.
