New picnic benches were built on the new Canyon View trail at Montana de Oro. Skilled human labor would be on hand to build the picnic benches, but just how would the materials get to the overlook spot specifically picked out for the picnic benches to sit? It took a coordinated effort of several trail user groups to pull together. Sharon Jantzen gathers the story from several participants in this collaborated effort.
Several horse trail ride options can be experienced from various starting points within the Lopez Lake Recreational Area campgrounds. Cougar trail takes riders through oak-shaded trails and connects up with Marina trail for some sweet lake views. Sharon Jantzen takes us on a ride through Lopez Lake Recreational Area.
