From the parking lot at the lake, walk the Bayfront Trails to Stevens Creek Trail, as described above. Just past Critteden Marsh’s water fountain, walk West and North to get to North Road. The road skirts the edge of the park, passing the Dog Park and Golf Course, both on the right. This trail continues North until the Northern edge of the park, when it turns East and heads to the Northern edge of the lake. Follow the path as it leads between the lake and a Northern pond, then turn right along the Bay Trail, to finish the hike along the Salt Evaporation Pond. The trail turns inland along Permanente Creek, and ends in the lake parking lot.
