Been coming in November and December and I rarely see more than one other hiker. Great place to let the dog roam off leash during the slow winter months. First time through the trail can be hard to follow in spots but the app's GPS never fails to put me back on track and even help to blaze a new trail.

12/27/16. 50 degrees, what? A bit icy by the river. Great hike. Stopped by the Roadhouse after for a drink. Life is good. Cheers

Beautiful trail system, includes river views, open spaces along power line with wild flowers and butterflies in addition to wood trails. Great for hiking and trail running.

Great trail anytime of the year. not too intense but part of the trail leading to the powerlines has a very steep incline which can be a challenge for some hikers. has a nice little cliff you can jump off that i have heard named chicken rock and a few other names but is only a 10 foot jump or so. be sure to always check the water first, the heavier rains can sometimes bring in large tree branches which get stuck in front of the rock. it is also illegal to jump or swim anywhere in the reservoir so always keep a keen eye out for police officers who love to throw tickets at anyone in the water.

Go in the spring when the water is rushing! Great falls.
