This is a fantastic hike for someone looking for a pretty easy well-defined loop trail. Plenty of access to water throughout too, which was great for our dogs. Takes about 2 hours to get the whole way around.

Great views all around. Not a difficult path so I run most of it. Great for pets and kids. You can fish, bring kayaks. There's benches and spots for picnics. No bikes unfortunately.

Peaceful. Easy hike. The 2 miles around I did was flat for the most part. Great for walking, speed walking and jogging and walking a dog or something. I got to walk some of the trails past the 2 mile mark and it seemed a little more rugged. If I decide to hike the entire perimeter, I will definitely be wearing hiking boots. Sneakers did fine today.

5.3 to 6 mile hike with enough elevation to make you feel like you did something. Great hike for a family and our dog loved the occasional ability to drink from the reservoir. Kids 8 and up will enjoy.
