From the parking area, I took the yellow to orange along the reservoir. Then turned back on the white, and looped around on the red stripe to blue. From bear rock I took the white back towards the parking area.

Yellow/orange was incredibly well marked almost to the point where it was a bit obnoxious. Everything after that, you had to pay some attention. Yellow/orange was a really nice stroll along the water then up some rocks to cliffs overlooking the water. Red stripe seemed a little less traveled - was a fun little stretch. Blue was steep at times- and very rocky.

Maybe not the most exciting hike or the most rewarding views, but at the end of the day was a very enjoyable hike with varied terrain.

Great area with lots of space and options. Even on busier days you won't have to worry about crowding (on the trails), however, parking can get a little tight but there is plenty of additional side of the road spaces available. Also- make sure to check out the visitor center, especially if you have kids!
