Great hike: Great town.

The climb up the road to the trail head is the hardest part. The trail is marked by obvious paths and blue dots and the "garden of eden" is a nice break and ending at the reservoirs is a pleasant resolution.

Great hike. There was a fallen tree blocking part of the trail and that part of the trail wasn't well marked, so we took the wrong trail instead. We later found the correct trail and completed both. It was a lovely hike.

The reservoirs at the top are beautiful, and well worth the hike. Getting to the Trail head is a bit confusing and the Trail is poorly marked. Make sure to give yourself ample time to figure out where the Trail goes. But a great hike!

Great hike with absolutely breathtaking views at the reserve. Totally worth the steep incline and switch backs. My husband and I enjoyed it!

Amazing gorgeous Trail at this time of year. You should definitely go as far as you want… it is a very steep climb / switchbacks for the first couple of miles, plenty of gorgeous overlooks and places to stop. Several creeks and plenty of water for your dogs . The garden of Eden - an Alpine Forest- is absolutely gorgeous this time of year, if you get there it's worth it. When you get to the reservoir, there's not a whole lot of space to hang out. Lots of fishermen, boaters, tourists, cars....
And definitely make sure you have strength to get down!

the trail was gorgeous this beautiful fall day and the views at the lake were worth getting lost a few times. bring plenty of water and snacks.

Beautiful hike. Steep ascent and the walk to the trail head was long and a steep ascent as well. The Garden of Eden was a great stroll and leaves were hanging. Would recommend to anyone who won't mind the uphill battle.

Well trafficked and marked trail with beautiful views from top to bottom. Would highly recommend to anyone willing to put in a little work on the ascent.

Nice trail, but much more moderate than easy. Over half the hike is steep switchbacks with large rocks and roots to navigate. Not necessarily difficult but wanted to mention it for people who may have bad knees or feet. I actually enjoyed the 1 mile walk to the trailhead through the quaint mountain cabins. Nice that there are several places where you follow a stream. As one reviewer said, bring plenty of water and snacks.

Extremely beautiful trail, probably moderate, switchbacks and steep sections easy to navigate for us with a 5 and 7 year old. hiked through the garden of Eden section, very nice meadow, tons of wildflowers, some aspen trees just starting to turn yellow, can't wait to go back in a few weeks when they are fully golden, lots of aspens in the garden of Eden meadow. As others have mentioned, we parked at the dirt lot at the bottom of Hondo Rd and walked the .9 mile to the top. we hiked 6 miles round trip from the car and stayed on the blue trail the whole time. did not make it to the reservoir, was not sure how to get there after the upper falls section where the trail intersects ends at the dirt road. One of my favorite hikes in the area.
