This hike, which visits a number of ponds and some riparian habitat, serves as a good introduction to Daley Ranch. Get an early-morning start, so as to take advantage of the best bird watching and listening, the solitude, and the cool comfort of the morning air.

Nice hike around three ponds above Lake Dixon on Daley Ranch. I highly suggest this loop. Plenty a pull off spots and benches or nice shade trees. The loop even takes you past the ranch house if you need a Lou or a picnic spot.
