Great trail

Beautiful on a fall day! At the trailhead, we went left and headed east toward Hobb's Reservoir. At the fork, we went right and gently wound up to the Reservoir. It was a little steep, but the kids did fine. We got the WIA permit online and explored a bit around Hobb's Pond. Then we followed the trail to its end. I would have given this 5 Stars if the Reservoir had been visible for more of the hike. As it was, you could see it at the WIA Access points or barely glimpse it through the trees. But the fall foliage was gorgeous, and I can see us coming again with fishing poles!

We fat biked this trail in the winter when it was full of snow and then we did it again during the summer with our road bikes. Beautiful views of the marsh lands and the birds.

Taking the right path is the best for seniors and kids, the left path has inclines, not really recommended for seniors and young kids.

I love being away from traffic! Beautiful landscape! See wildlife every once in awhile!

Grew up hiking this trail. Love love love it. Not sure why it has a hard rating though. I feel a moderate rating would be appropriate. Plenty of flat spots and moderate inclines. The steepest part is the switchbacks at the beginning (don't attempt in the heat. the sun will beat down on you and you will want to die).
The waterfall is a great reward at the end. There are some stream crossings so depending on the water level your feet might get wet.
Heavily trafficked. Great for families (the first part might tough on really little ones).

Once you leave the BST this trail is STEEP. Sage and scrub oak are encroaching on the trail so pants are recommended. Up to the fork before the tin cabin the trail is easily followed and has orange ties periodically. Back on the main trail after the cabin the trail grows difficult to follow and the ties stop from what I could see but it should continue for about 1.5 more miles ending at the Great Western Trail.
