A loop hike that explores the wonders of Calero Reservoir County Park. This hike offers views of the reservoirs as well as some vertical elevation gain to great overlooks of the surrounding park. NOTE: the Chisnantuck Trail will be closed until Spring 2018, so you may not complete the full loop at this time. check here for updates:

Great views from the Bald Peaks Trail. However the Chisnantuck Trail is closed due to construction until spring 2018 and it's not possible to complete the loop.

Took around 4 hours at a moderate pace with a few breaks. The ascent isn't as difficult as some of the other hard trails. There are some good views of the reservoir from atop the bald peaks.

Good balance of flat and slope areas. Very nice view of the valley and city with many wild flowers in the spring. I will definitely do it again.

Lots of people on weekends, but only on the small loop. Great trail if you hit the back of the park!

Rather a moderate run and obviously better suited for cold weather (like today) than hot. Very few people too.

Pros: Lots of hills, so you definitely get a good workout. Not very trafficked at all on a weekday morning.
Cons: I'd say about 90% of the area has absolutely no shade. I'd probably save this one for fall when it's cooler. I also found the trail signage and map to not match-up in a lot of areas.

Great hike! The journey through this area was tedious and definitely worthwhile! I went by myself but think its better in a small group! Careful for the incline, there's a lot of them :)
