Extremely tough and long bring plenty of water and food.

Calm lake. Two hiking options: 6 miles out & back or 4.5 miles loop. Out&Back is easy, loop is moderate.

What a GORGEOUS hike! So much wildlife this morning near the pond (which I guess is the watering hole). Lots of bullfrogs at a different pond along this trail about 1.5 miles in as well. The flowers were blooming, the grass was tall and green, and there were lots of bugs, but no biting bugs. The dark oak trees contrast beautifully against the light green wavy grass. There's lots of shade and sun and is in perfect condition to hike right now before it gets too hot. We did all 7 miles (both loops) and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful views and wildlife we saw. Bring lots of water, definitely wear sunscreen, and maybe wear a hat in the next couple months. There is a bit of steep incline between the loops, but it doesn't last for a long time.

Keep the trail clean and enjoy!

What a beautiful peaceful hike. Take a day off work and go... less talk more walk.

A nice trail although I'd keep a careful eye out for rattlesnakes. Other than that an easy trail for someone who hikes regularly. Also, this is to be expected but when hiking along bodies of water but be wary of insects! There are a lot along the reservoir.

There was no trail head or markings on where the trail started and no way to get across the spillway. Total bust.
