Lake Gregory is an easy hike that takes you around the scenic town of Crestline, CA. It is a popular spot that has a water slide, swimming, fishing and hiking. The trail also features physical fitness stations where you can do pull ups and sit ups and other feats to show how strong and awesome you are.
The lake was developed under the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1938. Urban legend claims that the construction equipment left at the site is still at the bottom of the lake.
If you want a easy hike and a quick vacation like experience, Lake Gregory is a great choice for a day trip. It is not particularly strenuous, making it a great option for families with small children.
Crestline is also my home town, so obviously awesome people come from there.
