Very easy walk, absolutely silent once you get off the road, and the “lake” itself is beautiful. Like others have said, be sure to cover yourself in insect repellent and probably bring some along just to be safe.

Relatively easy out and back trail on an old railroad bed. Perfect trail to go out if you're looking to get a couple easy miles and somewhat scenic.

Beautiful trail on a Fall day. Peaceful, easy ride/ walk with areas to explore. Must have had some washouts at some point that were filled with larger rocks. I could bike bike over them but chose to get of and walk the 10-50 feet.

Nice and flat trail. Great for jogging or bike riding. On a nice summer day, the reservoir is beautiful!

Little longer that 4 miles if you go all the way to the fence. I would say more around 5. Fantastic ride. A little harder on the way back due to a slight incline, but perfect for a beginner like me.

First to Review

Easy hike 4.2 miles round trip... Trail is the old railroad bed follow out 2.1 miles to reservoir can also go north on the pipe line to box car rocks... Great place to see the box car rocks from down below when the leaves fall off in fall.
