I love this trail! ❤
Leading up to and through the walk around most of the north side of the reservoir, we had no problems and the atmosphere was great! However, the trail is never marked, and it became a problem along the south side. Trying to find/follow trails was so frustrating, we weren't able to appreciate the walk back. Still worth it, just try to follow the reservoir whenever the trail fails you. Also, the app's GPS was a huge help, it's worth bringing along!
Hiked this trail with the hubby, our two girls (2 yrs and 9 mo) on our backs and our dog. Had a great hike in to the reservoir where we enjoyed a picnic lunch. What a great place so close to home!
Beautiful walk around reservoir!
Trail was not marked at all but the GPS on the app helped. It does have some nice views of the reservoir. Couple spots you have the option to climb up pretty high so this increases the workout. Lots of people by the water
Beautiful trail around the reservoir. Varied terrain. Easy enough to take a group of cub scouts!
great walk. was difficult to find the path at end of reservoir. other hikers led us on.
Lovely. Required some rambling.
Great easy hike in a beautiful secluded area. Clear wide trails most of the way, easy to follow native trails next to water all around reservoir. Looking forward to going back again soon.
