Lake Wohlford Southside Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This short section of trail, primarily used for fishing access at Lake Wohlford’s shoreline, winds for about 0.5 mile amid dense growths of chaparral and coast live oak. Leafy curtains of poison oak drape the oak limbs, lending a Tolkienesque flair to the scene. It’s tranquil here on weekdays, but a bit noisy on weekends with boat traffic on the lake and car traffic along the far shore. You can sit on benches or lie on a large rock slab by the shore, all the while observing the rippling lake surface or the activities of birds (I witnessed several hawks exploding into flight over the crown of an oak tree)."

"Walking these short, easy trails in the dewy morning hours is a feast for the senses."
