HikingGreat!

A bit confused with Easy and Moderate trails between Blue and White trails, but enjoyed the autumn scenery very much.

Nice loop with fall colors. A bit of littering though. I wish people were more respectful.

Nice area around the shoreline which made for a great cooling breeze. To enter the area you need to pay $5, at least when we went we were charged. Plenty of parking spots. The blue trail is at the lower lot while the white and green are at the top lots. It was a straightforward walk with some increases/decreases in elevation. The kids enjoyed themselves. Took us about 1.5 hours to do the two mile walk of the blue trail to the green trail. If you want an easier elevation change I would suggest starting on the green and then going over to blue. I found the hardest hill to be on the blue trail climbing up over some rocky areas. Overall the trail was pretty smooth and I thought well maintained. The markers are on a mix of rocks in the middle of the path and on the trees/posts.

Very pretty area. Gets a little tight on the trails sometimes. I hung out a little bit by the water and it was less crowded. Good for dogs as well.

I love Round Valley. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the state. This trail shows off some of the best views of the reservoir and the rock beaches. Tail is well maintained and usually pretty quiet, but has been subject to a large influx of people since social distancing has been enacted. Highly recommend!

There are five trails with trailheads off the South parking area (see map pic). The Pine Tree Trail is an easy 1.5 mile loop off the parking lot. At one end of the loop, it connects with the Blue Trail, which has spectacular views of the Reservoir. The Blue Trail (about 1 mile from parking lot to Green Trail) connects and overlaps with the White Trail. All of these trails are well marked. Some of the blazes are on rocks on the ground and dead trees, so you should be looking up and down for trail signs. We had a terrific time, walking on the green, blue and white trails. By dint of backtracking and repeating some of our favorite bits, we got 7.25 miles under our belt. It was a beautiful day and this entire section of the park was blessed with the wonderful scent of mountain laurel.
