Beautiful trail and a great hike, but the reservoir has been drained. There is a small sign near the trail head that states it has been emptied for an indefinite period while the Corp of Engineers evaluates the structural integrity of the dam and determines what to do.

Great trail. Beware of loose gravel and steep climbs. I hike with my dog, and it's very important that they stay close by when you inevitably take them off the leash for steep descents. The views are great and the Aspen trees are gorgeous at the top.

Tips: Rugged footwear is preferred over running shoes here, especially after it rains.

Bring plenty of water!

Hiking with a friend is best, this is not a highly used trail and it could be a while before someone stumbles upon you.
