Great little jaunt around a reservoir. This is an extremely easy, zero challenge "hike", anyone who can walk a mile and a half can do this trail. That being said, it's a great hike for old or young family members if you're looking to get outside with some relatives. The trail is really a very wide vehicle road.

So yeah, it's not much of a hike, BUT it has excellent wildlife viewing. There is a protected bird nesting area on the west side of the reservoir and that half of the trail shuts down annually from April to the end of August. In our most recent trip on 2/19, we saw a bald eagle, prairie dogs, jumping fish, a lone coyote, and a murder of crows. Not too shabby for a 1.5 mile walk that is very close to town.

Overall, fairly ordinary small-reservoir trail. Smooth and flat; the trail is likely best for locals looking to stretch their legs or for families with children (incl. sport strollers). Enjoyed the views of the foothills and the calm, quiet atmosphere. Did not enjoy having to watch for Prairie dog holes on the otherwise smooth trail, or the smell when downwind of the water. (Yuck.)
