Go early or wear tons of sunscreen.

Fun trail, lots of beautiful camping sites. Stock Four Runner TRD (from Avis, don't tell them). When done turn right and try CR68j its harder but fun.

Nice easy trail. Some water for dogs to wallow in. Good view of mountains. Shade concentrated in some places, exposure for majority of the loops. Great to do with dogs and/or kids.

Beautiful and peaceful view and not a lot of people. Quite a drive and don’t recommend the south entrance (30 minutes of dirt road) but it was worth it once we made it. Also very kid friendly

Favorite to be alone

Less of a hike, more of a walk along a dirt road (there are real trails nearby going elsewhere). Pretty views though down by the reservoir. Lots of EXCELLENT camping spots all the way down, with not that many people; may come back just for that. Didn’t like having to move off road about 15x for cars, but I guess it’s shared.

Easy loop trail with beautiful views of the mountains. Dogs are allowed off leash which was a little chaotic since it was crowded.

Quite a wonderful trail. We always like trying trails that are near water. There were also a few swarms of bugs/gnats and a dozen dog poop piles unfortunately. We will for sure be back! They don’t call it wonderland for nothing. :)

Beautiful easy and quick walk. Wide path to pass people and other dogs. Few places to sit by the lake. Not busy or crowded.

Quick and easy walk. Great for dogs. Dogs are allowed off leash with proper tags/registration. The trail is wide enough to allow everyone to easily pass. Nice view of a lake and the flat irons, though you don’t have access to the lake.

The hike it self is beautiful not a lot of people there at 8am there’s a couple shady parts which makes it very nice.

Fun loop to do with dogs or kids. There’s a cute bridge that water lovers will enjoy. The stream was rushing fairly quickly due to recent rain, so dogs need to be strong swimmers. Flat terrain and easy to navigate. Beautiful, large trees line the path, and unobstructed views of the mountains are plentiful.

Nice hike lots of biker, wouldn’t suggest on very hot sunny days

Great views, easy hike for kids and dogs.

tons of bikers but a nice hike. wish there was more shade.

High level of foot traffic. Nice waterfall & reservoir.

Very nice neighborhood trail. Not the most scenic when compared to other trails in boulder, but very easy and has some good views. Trail is flat and very accessible. My 9 year old said: I would not recommend traveling here if you live far away. It is a very nice lake and has a playground for young kids.

We went to Forth of July and a state trooper stooped is staying the park is full. Some cars waiting in line so get in but we decided to leave. Found this trail near by, and it was an okay trail. It’s a reservoir, not a lake. So the view is ok too. Parking was crowded but no fee. Trail is super dry and no shades. 05/17/2020 #18

Gorgeous views!! Very clean and relaxing. We came here for some good walks with our dog and it was very calming. We plan to come again to picnic. Not much people which We loved ... but I’m sure In the summer it will be packed or later in the day. We got there early around 7:45am.

This would be great to ride. There is parking outside of the reservoir to avoid the fee. As for walking, you share the road with vehicles for a bit. Bring bug spray and sunscreen!

My dog’s favorite trail!

This is a fairly uneventful hike. The main trail (if you want to take the longer route as posted here) is pretty much just an access road to camp sites. Felt more like walk on a dirt road than an actual hike. If you're looking for a more remote hike this may not be the one for you. Also, there was a decent amount of noise and activity coming from the reservoir itself once we got close.
