Great hike, brought my dog and he was definitely exhausted after. Beautiful scenery.

Very pleasant hike, partly through the forest and some in the open and near the ridges. Great that it is so easy to get to from town.

I'd rate this higher but for the noise from the shooting range on the other side of the lake. I was there in the summer as well, and the the gunfire can be heard on most of the trail.

Didn't find the trails very well marked. It was difficult to determine what was the walking trail and what was an animal path.

One of the worst hikes. Go elsewhere

Great workout. The reservoir side is a lot less steep and has a lot of cover, and the other side is much steeper and is a lot less shaded. The trail on the reservoir side is very narrow and the weeds are overgrown so if you are wearing shorts or capris your legs will get a bit scratched. Has a great view of the cities below and can see out for miles.

Amazig hike. Decent elevation. Great views of the lake. Lots of restrooms along the way.

We did the whole loop, starting from the reservoir side, and enjoyed the trail. Lots to look at, everything seemingly vibrant. The second half was not a trail but a dirt road. With almost no shade on a sunny day with a high of about 90. If I were doing it again I'd just hike on the reservoir side to the lookout and return the way I came.

A favorite hiking spot of mine. There's quite a few trails around here, lots of nice, scenic views, wild flowers, insects, a Creek. Just make sure you pay attention to the signs or you might get a bit lost.

Was good , but the entire length was well over 5.9 close to 7 miles I would say. Trail is pretty and scenic to begin with. Later it becomes climb and scenic. Maisie's peak was really good.

Pretty flat hike with views of the reservoir to start, then you climb and climb and climb. Good workout, and not too crowded.

After reaching the Reservoir the trail becomes more shaded and hilly. Few people nice run. For reference, names of the trails in the loop : Stevens Creek Tony Loop Trail, Lookout Trail, Vista Loop, Fern, Coyote Ridge then finally back to Stevens Creek Tony Loop Trail.

We jumped on at the Stevens Creek Reservoir and hiked the Loop and Tony Look Trails. The Tony Look trail is moderately rolling with a few good views. You will hear the gun club for a good portion of the hike, but the noise fades to white noise after a while.

Great hike - serene and peaceful - with great views and lots of shade. Parked at the winery which is a great spot to end the hike.

Did the Zinfandel trail and Orchard Loop to get close to 5 miles.
