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
Great Sunday hike. Getting there early was best. No problem finding a parking spot.
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!
Nice hike trail is easy to follow and there were some nice shady spots. The parking lot was full when we came off the trail at 11am.
Lots of options for trails
It's a good hike if you just want to walk a dog.
Uphill for the first 1.5 miles but easy after that. Easy road to hike, nice views, wildflowers, & 2 lakes.
