A great hike with the dog. It get's busy on weekend afternoons so I recommend going early. The resovor is beautiful and full of wild life.

Lived in Santa Cruz 10 years and never knew this place was up here! Went the counter-clockwise route as suggested. Took the Glen trails to Big Trees trail to Highland trail around to Loch trail back to the park store, total of 5 miles. Mosquitoes were SWARMING!! kinda of a drag but I was prepared with Doterra Terra shield bug repellent and not one bite.

Very nice trail and I enjoyed it a lot. I'd recommend to hike it counter-clockwise. This way you can do hills first and finish with a stroll along lake shore. Also when I was there I encounter some mosquitoes, so having repellent handy would be a good idea.

Beautiful hike with amazing views. We were a novice group of hikers and it took us about 2 hours to complete the hike. Comparisons to the Sierras are accurate. Will definitely be back.

Some of the short trails near HQ don't have clear entrances, might get off trails easily if you don't double check.

There's no map guide, and all the online maps are missing some details, need to take a picture of the map on the bulletin board at parking lot before hiking.
