Tree Swing via Reservoir Canyon Trail is an moderate to easy hike and the views are spectacular of the Central Coast. This hike is well worth doing, best in the spring when everything is blooming and it is not too hot. This creekside trail has both ticks and Poison oak as hazards if you get too close to the sides or go off trail. Rattlesnakes can be very common here and warnings are out for Mountain Lions. Narrow trail in places makes that more difficult to avoid poison oak.
Brand new parking area makes this trailhead a lot more use-able than it was. Enjoy.

Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks.
