easy walking the ridge. side trails down to the water make it more fun.

I was disappointed in this trail. In the summer the trees prevent you from seeing the water, even at the waters edge the view is obstructed. Trail is an old fire road that is cut in below the forest floor and is overgrown with grass is some spots. Very smooth trail. Moderate rating is a stretch.

The fire road is not all that interesting but the side trails lead down to nice spots on the reservoir.
