Description

Reservoir Canyon Trail (008) climbs out of the canyon from its intersection with the Vega Creek Trail (164). The first half mile is spent gradually winding up through the surrounding bushes before tackling the slope. All of the elevation gain is focused into a series of tightly packed switchbacks that end at the top at Forest Road (096).

While you'll earn some nice views along the trail and from the top, the rocky and rutted nature of the trail doesn't make for the most enjoyable ride.
