I did the whole loop, but forgot to load map when we began, hence the half way start. parking lot was full! mdc cops driving around, which was nice to see. so many walkers with their dogs. it was plowed, with some areas of ice, but nice. saw a hawk chase a mouse, catch it, and eat it in front of me- highlight of the walk.

Very crowded. A lot of walkers don't understand social distancing. Watch out for bikes.

WalkingGreat!

Very pretty now during foliage season. More trails to explore than I expected! Parking is difficult since it is restricted due to COVID. I tried coming on 3 separate occasions with no luck, 4th time I was able to find parking.

HikingGreat!

Completed this beautiful walk with my two adult daughters and 3-month old grandson this afternoon. Absolutely perfect weather - 70 degrees, slight breeze, and not a cloud in the sky. Loop was fairly busy, but people didn't detract from the lovely fall colors everywhere you looked. Entire walk was paved so it was a great path for strollers and cyclists, both of which we saw several of today. There are nice cut-betweens if you choose to get of the paved path (the Red Loop) that looked magnificent as these trails were completely in the trees, but with a baby stroller, we didn't venture onto the dirt paths. The stroll along the different reservoirs was peaceful and beautiful, and if you're local, you're missing out if you don't try this out. Apparently parking can be an issue; it appeared that a good portion of the parking lot has been blocked off because of COVID and the city not wanting too many people to come to the park all at once. The sign at the street where you turn in to the area said that the gates will just be shut if the parking lot fills up. There was a person sitting in a truck right near the entrance, and I assumed he was there keeping track of the number of vehicles coming in and out (he probably makes more than I do per hour as a paralegal), so I'm guessing that gets enforced. Two thumbs up on this gem!
