nice hike, on the easy end of the moderate scale. only downside was the sparse hard to find trail heads but we only lost the trail twice and made it out fine. I would definitely go back for a round 2!

Loved this trail! Even with crossing the creek numerous times, it is beautiful, serene, and finally wore by dogs out! Great trail!

This trail is great year round. Very peaceful, and starts out fairly easy then gets a little more difficult from there. I recommend going in the summer when the reservoir is full, and the ferns are green.

I'm a big fan of this trail! Perfect for a day hike or an overnight if you're up for some backpacking. Gorgeous overlooks, mountain laurel and mushrooms when in season, great variety of landscapes.

I really like the set up of this trail. Starts with a nice 6 mile saunter following the creek down to the waterfront where there are a few fairly well-maintained camping plots. Ended up staying the night in my hammock and following the ridge line back to the parking lot. Some good views of the resevoir but not alot of great overlooks on the trails. Still a very pleasant nature walk. Would return.

Great trail that you can do in a day or turn into a relaxing 2-3 day trip.
