Beautiful views, well kept trails. Fairly easy hike, although I just wore tennis shoes and would definitely recommend doing it in trail shoes. *There is a $7 day use fee that is paid at a station in the parking lot. Credit cards accepted.*

Absolutely gorgeous little trail. Took my 3 year old and it was a little tough for her. Found some not so steep little side trails that take you right down to the water. My kiddo loved splashing around. Not many people for a Friday afternoon in the summer. Would def go back.

It is a goos hike. Good for beginners. We took our dog. All was well although there is no shade.

Hiked this back in November of 2016 when I was visiting friends. Nice easy accessible area/hike. It's more of an area you can just explore around the reservoir.

The hike is easy, it's a gravel/dirt path along the reservoir. My nephews (4 and 6 years old) were just fine for this hike. The views of the reservoir are spectacular, but the hike isn't too challenging- no huge elevation gain or rock scrambles. So depending on what you're looking for, this hike is too easy or just perfect!

Good hike, annoying part is it's $7 to park at the trail head. We're not from co but seems to be a trend to pay for everything here...

Trail is beautiful and well-maintained with lake view, wildflowers, and frequent deer sightings, but is often crowded with bikers.

Nice Father's Day hike. Awesome reservoir views. Just enough rise at points to get your heart pumping a bit. Heavily traveled with hikers, bikers and a few dogs. Rattlesnake a few feet off trail. All ages 5 and up can make this.

Perfect hike for beautiful lake views, good mix of both ascending areas and flat straightaways. Had some muddy areas especially on the first 1/3 of the trail, but all were able to be maneuvered around easily. A delightful couple of hours.
