wonderful easy trail for self and dog, no shade, access to reservoir water for dog, use All Trails App and mix it up by hiking Tower trail back to Shoreline, etc. ran into a slew of bikers, looked like a bike camp for kids, $9.00 fee, $20.00 if not paid and get ticket, we bought 12 month pass for $90.00. $65.00 age 65. plan to go back and hike a bit of Tower trail.

Easy hike I enjoyed doing with my dog. No shade and some parts of the trail are single file and others are over grown. I would consider this easy rather than moderate.

I'm hoping more people will do more robust reviews so we other hikers can learn from them! This is more of an easy to moderate hike (IMO, of course) and is all in the open. First, let me start with this for the people who are new to the area...there is a $9 day pass fee to get to this area! Just FYI. PROS: BATHROOMS at start (very important if you are driving from far away) Beautiful meadow areas Tons of pathways Very well marked I think we had signal Tons of trail maps at the start and actual hand brochures CONS: Single file in some areas No shade for pups TONS OF BIKERRRRRSSSSS.... and it was hit or miss if they announced themselves. I felt we had to keep looking behind us to see where they were. Some people were nice, but I felt we were ALWAYS deferring to the bikers. As of today 6/2, it was dry as a bone and tons of people were taking advantage of that. This is an excellent area, but be prepared to make concessions to bikers.

Great hike for a moderate trail. Really muddy today, a lot of mountain bikers turned back around and left.
