Amistad National Recreation Area offers hikers a number of trails to explore, whether you are interested in just a short walk or a more ambitious hike.
A short interpretive nature trail can be found at Diablo East. Here you will learn about a variety of plants and enjoy sweeping views of Lake Amistad.
The Sunrise Trail is 2.1 miles long and connects the park Visitor Center with Spur 454. Located on the old Brite Ranch, you will see a large variety of plants and birds while hiking. There are benches so you may sit and enjoy the sweeping views of the lake.
The Figueroa Trail is a series of trails that comprise the longest trails in the recreation area. Located on the old Figueroa Ranch, these rolling trails will take you through desert and shrubland plants, while providing views of the lake and the dam.
Other informal hiking options exist. Visitors can walk the shoreline, and the park's Hunt Areas are open to the public year-round. Hikers will only encounter hunters during hunting seasons.
Be sure to have a copy of Amistad NRA Map and Guides which shows the park's boundaries, since hiking on adjacent private land is not permitted.
