I started out on this track, but turned around when I saw that it was just going to run along the side of the highway. I actually found a dense network of trails on the east side of the reservoir -- these do not show up on the AllTrails map but are described here: https://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/quail-overlook.htm. To get to these trails you have to turn right off North 5300 W (RT 318) onto a dirt road just before the chain link fencing for the Water Treatment Plant (coming from the South). Eventually I stumbled across a trailhead. There is also access from the neighborhoods on the east side of the park (Leeds). These trails seem mostly designed for mountain biking, with lots of very gradual switchbacks that are kind of a pain if you are hiking. You can climb up to the top of some of the escarpments and get good views of the area. There are lots of maps posted on the trails, but I didn't find them very helpful. There seems to be something funky with the GPS in the area, as my recording and some of the others posted have spikes going off in random directions. My wanderings probably added up to 3.5 miles.

This is not a trail for young kids to mountain bike on. Some narrow sections with a lot of side hill sections. This has some nice flow sections with many ups and downs. A few technical features at the top end of the trail.

Hadn't hiked for 8 months, so we looked for an easy one to get back in the swing. This is an easy trail which parallels the highway. Scenic in spots as it overlooks the lake. Although this is also a mountain biking trail, we did not see anyone on the trail with us today. Great starter hike.

We hiked about a mile out and a mile back. A good trail for beauty, relative seclusion for being close to the road, and a good workout with lots of ups and downs designed for mountain bikes. Wednesday afternoon saw one bike and no other hikers. Wildflowers were just coming in mid-March.
