great paved trail for running, biking, or scenic walk. Only caveat is the wired fencing which takes away from the view at moments.

Great trail. Would be nicer if the barbed fence were not there.

beautiful views, a little too long for me. I thought there is an exit road in the middle but it is closed so I have to finished the whole trail. but I saw a dear in the last half part so it worth it.

This is a (mostly) paved, divided road with beautiful views of the river. I enjoyed the climb and descent at the midpoint. The only downside is that parking can be a bit tight because it's a very popular trail.

Smooth pavement; abundance of shade along path; plenty of curves to make it interesting; several bathrooms along path; varied elevation but majority is flat. Saw lots of families with small kids, strollers.

Very easy stroll on meandering, lightly undulating paved paths which offers pleasant views along the way. It can get very busy on weekends.

is a easy trail to easy that makes it a little bowring but wen you get to the end it makes it worth to bad that in the first part you are not to near the water like in the end.

This is a great path if you are walking with a stroller or bringing along a young child who is riding their bike. Not really a hike. Paved and has fences along the path. Really pretty view of the reservoir.

This trail is a great confidence builder, I like to hit the hill halfway.. for being 12 miles it's really pretty pleasant.

Paved trail where you follow the water's edge. It gets busy as the day continues but was easy and beautiful! I would highly recommend this for all levels.

Probably my favorite place on earth for biking. Try to catch it early or on a weekday as it is very crowded on weekends.

Great place for a long run-12 miles. It’s trafficked after 10 am by moms with trollers & people walking.
