If you're looking for a pleasant way to spend the day, this is it. I stopped on my way to a seminar with my Standard Poodle, Fritz. We biked from the Dorena Lake dam to the Mosby Creek trailhead and back, then hiked along the lake an additional two miles and back to our vehicle at the dam. We saw other bikers and hikers, lots of birds and wildflowers, trestle bridges, covered bridges, and a couple of mules and nice scenery along the way. Really a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
