Set in a quiet valley just 1 mile east of Discovery Bay, Anderson Lake is a peaceful body of water teeming with ﬁsh and wildlife. Once the centerpiece to farmland owned by William F. Anderson, the 70-acre lake and surrounding ﬁelds and forest are now part of a 476-acre state park. Hike well-maintained and lightly used trails through the old homestead and around the lake within this pastoral park.
More than 8 miles of trails traverse this lovely park. A good introduction is the easy 2.3-mile hike around Anderson Lake. Start by walking 0.3 mile down the gravel access road through rolling pasture to a trail crossing. The trail heading right is the Olympic (C) Trail, a 1.1-mile rolling woodland romp that eventually leads back to the trailhead when linked with the Anderson (B) Trail.
