Uphill all the way up to the reservoir but not too difficult and worth the climb. Family friendly but too bad it is not a loop.

This is a nice area that doesn't get too crowded. The scenery at both reservoirs is wonderful

We are beginner hikers and the incline was a tough road to hoe. Definitely beautiful and I've learned to check distance AND elevation. Happy trails

Quite a bit of traffic but the upper reservoir is nice.

Too bad people can't read or understand the "leash your dog" sign!!! If it weren't those ignorant folks this would be a nice hike. I keep my dogs leashed...you fools need to do the same!

Uphill for the first 1.5 miles but easy after that. Easy road to hike, nice views, wildflowers, & 2 lakes.

Great hike. Trail is really a forest road and there is allot of people, but the views are great. Good fishing at the top.
