This is a paved, family-friendly, out-and-back trail that follows along the shoreline of Lower Crystal Springs Reservoir. Take the trail on the perimeter of the reservoir, return via the way you came. Accessibility: This trail has a paved and smooth surface and is typically at least five feet wide. It is mostly gentle with an estimated grade of 5% or less except at about 4.7 miles, where the max grade is steep (between 8% and 12%). This point may be too steep for wheelchair/mobility equipment and stroller users without assistance. There are three designated handicapped-accessible parking spaces in the parking lot and the restroom at the trailhead is accessible. There are benches along the trail for resting.Show more
