Nearly complete tour of the trails at Waterdog Lake Park. Can be ridden in either direction, but this way ensures the best descents down Berry Trail and Rambler Trail. I've marked the route as green, but there are a few sections that can be a moderate challenge at speed.

Note that the whole park is multi-use and frequently used by joggers and dog walkers. Please keep our little close-to-home jewel on the peninsula friendly for all users.

 I think the difficulty of this loop should be upgraded, to reflect the harder sections, where beginners get injured (exposed singletrack... where the hill drops off). They also block flow on the singletrack, and would be better off on wider trails, such as Arastradero.
