This is the most peaceful place to visit. You can enjoy this trail for slow to fast moving or just go a short way to the bench. The view is spectacular. Peace 💕

You can join people walking, pushing strollers, biking, running on this beautiful trail next to the reservoir. Sometimes you get to see a bit of wildlife like deer.

Worth the climb- it's challenging enough to work out the body while enjoying the cool breeze and the sights!
