What a beautiful day we had for our first hike to the reservoir! The dogs loved the run and going for a swim. We saw ducks enjoying their life on the water. Very peaceful setting. Also met some nice people and their very well behaved dogs on the trail.

OK; very peaceful. No trail markers to speak of. Will do the opposite side of the reservoir next time.

Leading up to and through the walk around most of the north side of the reservoir, we had no problems and the atmosphere was great! However, the trail is never marked, and it became a problem along the south side. Trying to find/follow trails was so frustrating, we weren't able to appreciate the walk back. Still worth it, just try to follow the reservoir whenever the trail fails you. Also, the app's GPS was a huge help, it's worth bringing along!

Hiked this trail with the hubby, our two girls (2 yrs and 9 mo) on our backs and our dog. Had a great hike in to the reservoir where we enjoyed a picnic lunch. What a great place so close to home!
