there are better trails around the reservoirs than this mostly gravel loop trail. explore the side trails.

The place is really nice and scenic, but forget mountain biking...all the trails say no can only bike on the paved road going to the back parking lot. I don't get it. I WALKED some of the trail with my bike, and I see no reason why no bikes. ?? If someone knows why, please comment. It's no different than a Rails-to-Trails ride, just a small bit rougher. Otherwise, will be back to walk, not bike :-(
