The trail is very well marked and there are post markers along the way. Trail is hilly at times, really got my blood flowing. Towards the end of the trail I could see the reservoir but had to cut thru the trees and bushes to actually see it. The trail continues after the reservoir, not sure if where I turned around was where the map shows the turn around point. It was very quiet on the trail during my 5 hours hiking I only saw 5 other people.
