Seymour Valley Professional Review and Guide
"Here is an easy, anytime walk for the whole family—shady and cool on a hot day, short enough for a brisk winter outing, and within easy reach of the city. Coyotes, bears, cougars, bobcats and deer make their home in the forest, all of them practised at avoiding encounters with humans.
Nevertheless, you should look out for deer on this walk, in brushy areas or a forest clearing. Highlights: Forest and lake; woodland birds, waterfowl; deer, squirrels. Terrain: Flat. Forest trail and service road. Rice Lake Loop trail is suitable for wheelchairs."
