Nice scenic walk in the middle of the Reed College campus. The water and bridges were nice features. Lots of places to sit and hang out. The name doesn't make much sense though. I would probably title it "Reed Lake Loop" since that is the main feature. Crystal Springs is where the Rhododendron Garden is - across 28th Ave, not here.

Fun cute little trail near the pond. Beautiful view. I went when it was snowing so if course it was muddy. I’d suggest going across the street to the rhododendron garden even if you have to pay the $5 admission in the spring time. It’s a gorgeous area.

Nice walk, lovely water and very small ups and downs. Enjoyed it! Will be back! Was glad I had the AllTrails app, it’s easy to take a wrong turn here. GPS tracking on the trail was EXTREMELY helpful. Good signal so no worries about that folks!!

Nice short stroll. Added rhododendron gardens to lengthen it a bit

this place is great it's Urban, also has some trails that are paved, but the best thing about this is the lake and all of the bark dust cover Trails for a nice soft foot strike. The only downside is it's very confusing and you can kind of get out of whack of where you're trying to go and I ended up over inside of a school and got all crazy other than that it's extremely great place to go

Nice easy walk. Lots to look at even in the winter months (lots of variety of ducks and even saw a beaver). Very serene midweek in October

New to walking/hiking and I found finding a BEGIN spot such as a sign was difficult but none the less eventually a small opening among the campus led to a path which took me into Crystal spring/ Reed Lake trail and it was very scenic. There were also many places to break for lunch, rest or birding.

Nice place to stroll, watch birds, people, and enjoy the gardens. Lots of places to sit. My 5 year old loved it. Don't go if you don't like watching people feed ducks. At least it was cracked corn and not bread.

I walk this trail almost every day with my dogs. It's quite easy but very beautiful and puts you into the heart of Reed College campus. there are always ducks on the water and even sometimes a heron or two.
