Agree with Don Pat’s previous review. We couldn’t find the “loop”—and also ran into other hikers with the same problem. We took the well-manicured West Shore gravel trail up the right side of the reservoir but never saw a clearly marked trail to loop back to the right. So we followed the gravel trail to its end at a Forest Service cabin, beautiful views of Hyalite Creek from a road bridge near the cabin, and amazing views of the mountains. Worth it, but a 5-mile out-and-back—not a 3-mile loop.
