Great hike. My girlfriend and I took our two dogs with us. Had great spots throughout it to sit and chill in the shade.

Perfect with kids

Great little jaunt around a reservoir. This is an extremely easy, zero challenge "hike", anyone who can walk a mile and a half can do this trail. That being said, it's a great hike for old or young family members if you're looking to get outside with some relatives. The trail is really a very wide vehicle road.

So yeah, it's not much of a hike, BUT it has excellent wildlife viewing. There is a protected bird nesting area on the west side of the reservoir and that half of the trail shuts down annually from April to the end of August. In our most recent trip on 2/19, we saw a bald eagle, prairie dogs, jumping fish, a lone coyote, and a murder of crows. Not too shabby for a 1.5 mile walk that is very close to town.

Nice enough walk. I heard a plane fly over and it ruined the whole experience though.
