A beautiful, paved walk along the reservoir. Easy grade for all levels. Several benches along the way to sit, relax, meditate or have lunch. Sanitary facilities but no drinking water. See deer, birds and other small woodland creatures. Parking is tricky especially on the weekends....More

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

A great way to enjoy an amazing walk with beautiful views and simple path. Always favorite place to get out and mindlessly walk in nature.

An easy, flat and paved walk along Crystal Springs Reservoir. Park at either trail head and walk as far as you want along water views, trees and pastures, various wildlife and some historic structures. Bring your camera!

If you are training for 1/2 marathon or marathon, you can run for 10+ miles without stopping. It's great for walking as well. Beautiful views of the mountains and large lake. A must try for serious (or not) runners in SF bay area.
