Very nice trail and the lakes were great
NOT the trail for the rock formation pictured and almost a mile longer than it says. The trail past the reservoir is a jeep trail, and it gets confusing. Loved it though!
Took the puppy and four kids on this hike. (10,9,4 and 2-in a pack). We made it to the second lake before the crew was ready to head back. They were bummed they couldn't go in the water, but it's drinking water, so no people or dogs can go in. Other than that, fun hike, really pretty, with LOTS of people and dogs; but we won't go again because of the water limitations.
