The initial trail to the reservoir is fine, even though it's a little washed out and rocky. Nice view. After that, staying on the trail is near impossible without following along with the app the whole time. I won't do this one again.

There are too many different trails all overgrown and not marked. Thin trail was mainly gravel and loose rock in the center. The view from the top is great though but not worth the steep and loose rock trail.

Pretty tough moderate trail. Very steep in many places. Great diversity in terrain and views. I would recommend

be aware - the trail is not Moderate! It is would rate it Moderate to Hard.
In some areas the trail was washed from the past winter. For these summer months, not too many areas to escape the sun.

This trail is poorly maintained and goes on roads for a good portion of it. The lake is also fenced off.

Very overgrown and should be rated as hard, pretty good time as long you don't bring anyone non adventurous, and don't bring your dog
