Overview

This hike features plenty of views of the surrounding reservoirs without having to climb huge elevations.

Need to Know

Plenty of parking along the road where the trailhead is. No access to bathrooms.

Description

There are two major challenges to this hike, 1) the constant up and down in elevation on very rocky terrain, and 2) lack of trail markings.

Be sure to do this 6 mile loop counterclockwise, otherwise the terrain can be very dangerous. We passed a few groups of hikers and they struggled coming down some of the parts due to loose rocks. There is a QR map posted at the beginning of the trail but I highly recommend downloading the GPX map to your GPS watch or follow the Hiking Project mobile app.

Flora & Fauna

Beware of copperhead sneaks. Keep your dogs on the leash!
