The trail start was difficult to find but once we were on our way, it was great! There was a creek which we enjoyed crossing. We saw a horseback rider and met the friendliest, most informative mountain biker. Thanks to him, we ended up at the canopy for some welcomed shade and an amazing view of the reservoir. (See pics)

Went out and back 5.2 miles Sunday morning. Nice easy hike with little elevation change. Go early to avoid mountain bikers, crowds and parking problems. Parking on the north side of the bridge at Singer road with the trail head to the south.

Well I said I was going to update, tried it and it's a pleasant walk. the trails need to be kept up though. if more people would visit the park rangers would keep it up just like they are doing it at Borderfield park. this trail has a lot of potential it's a good walk. The trail head in this map does need to change though. the start point is at Campo road,and you should be able to see the steel bridge.
