Silver Lake Reservoir Trail Reviews

An easy loop that offers different path alternatives. Two minor hills, on either side of the lake, but that is where you can get you “burn on” if you like. You can stay on the outer loop, or choose to cross through the “meadow” or through the Eucalyptus trees, when the gate is open on the West side of the lake. I usually stay on this side, because of all the traffic on the other. Only 3 stars because of this and also because of the dog park you pass on that side…it stinks on a warm day. I guess you can look at it as a way to make you run faster, if you do decide to complete the loop.
