Effort: This 1 mile partially paved but mostly gravel walking path and merits an Overall Grade Rating of Flat. Click the map below for more detailed information, and click here for information on our grade rating system and how we use grades to establish effort.

Stress: This 5' wide walking path is rated as low stress. Long sections of the path along the stream become soggy after rainstorms because of poor drainage, making conditions difficult or impossible for those using wheelchairs or canes, or pushing small-wheeled strollers.  

Universal Access: The path meets all standards for Universal Access Trails except with respect to firmness (see above).

Other features: This is a somewhat busy path that becomes quieter once you leave the reservoir, where it also becomes shaded for most of the rest of its length.  The path passes alongside the dog park, which can become quite noisy. Turn by turn directions are also available in the app for the loop.

Connections: The path overlaps with the Reservoir Loop at the beginning. At the northern end of the reservoir, veer to the right where the path forks to continue on the the Stream Loop.
