West Side Trail and Historical Walk

West Side Trail and Historical Walk Professional Review and Guide

"Trace the shoreline of Lake Chabot to an interpretive area surrounding the dam and spillway built by “Water King” Anthony Chabot.

Water has long been a source of power and prestige in California. To this day, if you have water, you prosper, whether as a rancher, a miner, a farmer, or, on a larger scale, as a developer, a city, or a county.

The route to the dam and its interpretive Historical Walk is straightforward. The paved West Shore Trail traces the edge of the lake, meandering through a lush oak woodland underlain with green grass and wildflowers in spring and early summer and parched by the end of the dry season."
