Black Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Black Lake is named for the color of the water, blackened by peat deposits beneath the lake. The lake sits in a natural depression nestled in the dunes and bordered by private property. It is formed from fresh water perched from the water table. The hike circles Black Lake through eucalyptus groves and coastal dune scrub. The views extend across the dunes to the Pacific Ocean."
