awesome hike, with lots of shades and a few cool options to head into hall ranch if you wanted an extended hike. awesome views all along the way.

Very pretty and relatively easy hike. I went early on a Sunday and it still wasn't overly crowded. The off-leash area (which was most of the hike) for the dogs was fantastic!

Really enjoyed this trail! Off leash area was fantastic for my pup!

Easy and mostly flat, like a dirt road. Designated leased and unleashed areas for dogs clearly marked which is nice. Water the whole way up which is always a great fav feature for me

Great trail but too many bikes. they were all polite but it was still a nuisance.

it was good had to use 4low couple times

Not too difficult, some good uphill climbs, beautiful creek side trail for a good majority! Awesome valleys with wildflowers! Saw a bear too!! Love it!!

The trail was a great loop for trail running. The beginning and end follow a fire road which is not as scenic if you're trying to impress out of town guests but the views of the reservoir are stunning. The trail is clearly marked where dogs are allowed off leash. I'm fairly local and see this becoming a regular loop!

Hall Ranch is fantastic for train running.

One error on the Wildlife section; the deer are mule deer, not whitetail.
