Some parts swampy, some parts desert. Saw a ton of little frogs, some lizards, hawks, and great view of the reservoir halfway through. Maybe a quarter of the trail had shade but otherwise sunny. Great hike overall

A lot more tree cover than expected. Beautiful walk in spring.

I'll tell you what, it's magical during the spring ✨ You've got pink, yellow, and purple wildflowers blooming, a running creek, a waterfall, and the lake lookout! It's truly a hidden gem.

Love this trail, very scenic and serene. Got a little muddy at times but no big deal. There's a big parking lot so no issue there. There's also shade throughout the hike and the scenic point halfway through is beautiful. Very easy hike, would definitely go again.

The recent rains made this an incredible hike. Perfect for my two grandkids. Nothing like getting a little muddy when your a kid. Would have given it a 5 but it was too short for me.
