Paved road all the way to trail head, easy access. Several trails to choose from, however the farther back you get the harder the trail is to find. We ended up cutting through a field to get on the bike trail. Reflection Pond is a SEASONAL pond. We made it all the way there just to find the pond was dry. Easy hike, would like to do it again in the spring after the rainy season.
"This is why we can't have nice things." Sadly, the trail was closed by the land owner... And I can't blame him. People left quite a bit of trash, did graffiti, and would not stay on the trail... This is not the way to enjoy the great outdoors. Pack it in, pack it out and only leave footprints. Simple right...?
