Imagine ... a series of trails encircling the perimeter of Clear Lake - both land and water-based - highlighting Lake County’s outstanding natural beauty, culture and history.
The land-based trails would provide hikers with scenic views of Clear Lake, Mt Konocti, vineyards, low-lying valleys, small communities and distant wilderness areas.
Through the use of signage, the trails could provide educational opportunities - enhancing the visitor's experience by providing an opportunity for recreation and appreciation of these unique assets - and promote community health and economic vitality throughout the region.
The water “trails” would permit recreational kayakers and canoers to experience the same views, vistas, and educational opportunities, but from a reverse perspective while fishing, bird watching or enjoying Lake County’s clean air.
The dream of the Konocti Regional Trails (KRT) group is to turn imagination into reality through a system of linked trails that could ultimately become a 100-mile circle surrounding the lake with connector trails extending away from its shores and outside the county.
