If you want a very beautiful hike this is the place to go. Try not to go in the middle of summer, as it is very hot. Be prepared with a ton of water, because the intensity of it will require lots of H20. There are lots of streams so if you have a water purifier that would be useful. Most of the hike is all uphill and going back is equally rough. But when you finally get to the reservoir, the hike is worth it. The water is nice and cool and full of fish. Overall a very good but hard hike.
