Jogged the paved loop close to the lake, then walked it again. 2.7 or so. Next time will try the rim trail.

Great trail, it's nice that you can choose to go up to the Rim trail to lengthen the hike. Great natural landscape, but we went on Sunday morning and the trail around the reservoir is quite crowded!

This was a nice hike, if I could give any advice it would be to wear good shoes, there are a lots of hills on a dirt path.

Nice scenic trail around the lake; also took one of the half mile side trails around part of the rim; hilly in parts but not overly strenuous.
