At least three intersecting fire roads with several blazed trails splitting off. Late afternoon in Jan. didn't have time to explore side trails.

Easy, wide trail with nice views of the reservoir at the end of the peninsula. Several side trails along the way from the main trail down to the reservoir for shorter out and back walks.

A quick out and back hike. A few Geocaches available as well as great views. Park along road shoulders to access.

The weather is finally above freezing after last week's arctic temps. The trail was easy to walk. The sun was out shining down the path. The birds out singing their morning praises loud and proud, flying in formation. The water is trying to unfreeze and or a fish is letting out air bubbles. It sounds like an echo of a bellow as it moves it's energy to the edges to break the ice. Almost like a video game lol! The beauty and sounds in nature can only try and be explained. Come experience it!
