An anomaly: despite this hike’s location at Liberty Reservoir, it rarely offers views of the reservoir itself. Nevertheless, it’s arguably the prettiest and most diverse hike in the Liberty Reservoir watershed. The trail splits almost immediately; a fishermen’s path to the right heads downhill toward the water, and the main trail, a wide fire road, continues straight. If you want to spend a little while by the water, take the cut down to the edge of the reservoir; to continue this hike, go straight.
