Fine but no short loop access

Great workout. The reservoir side is a lot less steep and has a lot of cover, and the other side is much steeper and is a lot less shaded. The trail on the reservoir side is very narrow and the weeds are overgrown so if you are wearing shorts or capris your legs will get a bit scratched. Has a great view of the cities below and can see out for miles.

Amazig hike. Decent elevation. Great views of the lake. Was lucky to spot a mountain lion in the fremont older preserve part of the hike. Lots of restrooms along the way.

Decent trail for a quick afternoon hike!

We did the whole loop, starting from the reservoir side, and enjoyed the trail. Lots to look at, everything seemingly vibrant. The second half was not a trail but a dirt road. With almost no shade on a sunny day with a high of about 90. If I were doing it again I'd just hike on the reservoir side to the lookout and return the way I came.
