This area is Open

This trail is separated into three segments due to the necessity of its crossing the reservoir twice.

  • Trail 18A is a one-half mile segment that parallels FR 751 and gradually descends to the edge of the water.
  • Trail 18B is a 1.2 mile segment from the south edge of the upper arm of the reservoir to the north edge of the lower arm of the reservoir. A clearing for dispersed camping is at the south shore.
  • Trail 18C is a one-half mile segment from the south edge of the lower arm of the reservoir to FR 139A. The uppermost segment of the trail is the most frequently used portion. (FR 751 is usually closed each winter during heavy snow season.)
