Tens of thousands of visitors come through the Lodi Lake Nature Area each year and use its trails for exercise, recreation, viewing wildlife and sometimes just to find some peace.
The existing trail system "officially" ends at Pigs Lake, which offers several options to return back to the Nature Area's entrance. The City is contemplating an expansion of the trail system to circle most of the way around Pigs Lake, offering visitors two vista points from which to view the Mokelumne River and Pigs Lake.
Spur trails to the north and south of Pigs Lake aren't part of the official trail system, but we're looking to improve those with elevated pathways that are wheelchair accessible that terminate at platforms with river overlooks.
