Hike around Bon Tempe Lake in Marin

This is a 4.1 Mile hike around a beautiful lake in the hills above Fairfax with an optional 1.8 mile hike around the adjoining Lake Lagunitas, in my opinion even more beautiful.
These hikes are a mix of shade and full sun.
We can bring a pot luck picnic and have lunch in the redwoods after the hike (or after the Bon Tempe hike and then hike around Lake Lagunitas).
This is a level hike with some of the usual roots and rocks once in a while and a few short hills.
The end time listed is entirely arbitrary, if you want to leave early, please make sure you have that option by either driving yourself or through consensus of your carpool. No swimming in these lakes.
There is a $7 entrance fee.
I can drive from the Coddingtown Library (leave 10 am).

    I would like to carpool from Coddingtown. A potluck lunch sounds fun. Let's plan together!

      personally, I think it is easier to bring our own lunch - unless we are eating at the end of the hike and aren't packing in our food and utensils. What was the idea?

    I'll bring a pasta salad!
