The hike up trace ridge was ok. nice views but the trail had lots of ruts. The hike down was very nice - the trail was in a lot better shape. Open forest at first, followed by a nice hike along the river. We encountered just 3 mountain bikers. It was dark when we got down so we missed the reservoir.

Love this hike. Trace Ridge up to Beaverdam Overlook on the BRP has a few long ascents, but flattens out between them. Nice views from the overlook. Spencer Creek Trail coming down is great for picking up some speed. Hikers beware: much of the trail is very narrow and the area is packed full of bikers. I found myself jumping off to the side many a time.
