Good place for a quick hike, after work that is in progress will be a good place to go, I hope they don't trash it.

Super cool place to check out right now, they drained the entire reservoir because they're rebuilding the dam so it's a really interesting place to visit. I believe it will be like this for a decent period of time.

Dirtiest trail I've been on. Entire length of " blue" marked trail was littered with broken glass. Several beer cans/bottles lay along the trail at different points. Was able to fill a grocery bag (which I also found) with trash in about 45 minutes. At least the rowing team has a nice facility along with a volleyball net.

It was ok... Water is beautiful !!! However the walk..... Well I got lost .. Yes Lol there needs to be more signs or whatever. There were many walking trails not near the water but one near the water goes to the main road for cars... I know now but wish I knew when I first went.

Is a goo spot,that after we lost access is back open for some time is good for some hiking,fishing,kayaking,canoeing and many more water activities as permitted,just remember this is a water supply and need to be clean.

Great trail with lots of scenic views of the lake and the reservoir. Plenty of birds near the dam. I loved it.
