Reviewed 6 January 2014

Path is paved and the terrain is not tough; though there are some slopes for those who have walking difficulties.

“A million dollar view for the price of parking (or a walk up the hill)!!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The "Res" is a wonderful spot to recharge your batteries, get back to nature, without leaving home. Literally two minutes from the 24 highway, it has water birds, fishing opportunities, hiking areas, and just a beautiful 2.7 mile stroll around the lake.

“Excellent Around the Lake Hike”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We stop every time we are in town for a couple hiking laps around the Lake - about 2.75 miles around. Try both directions for the views and different hill grades. Water and rest rooms are available too. Take lots of quarters - 4 per hour for the meters. No credit cards or bills

“Stretch your legs”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

A well traveled path surrounds the reservoir -- get out for a stroll here or jog the 3-mile loop, or bring a picnic and enjoy the shade and views of the picturesque reservoir. Parking lot will cost $6 but if you get there early enough you might find street parking for free.
