The Palo Verde Trail winds along the shoreline of Bartlett Reservoir, giving hikers an up-close view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Plenty of ups and downs along this trail give your legs and lungs a workout.

I really liked ths trail. It's easy to get to and the actual trail is easy to follow. i went in the middleof the summer so the scenery probably wasn't as good as it would have been in the fall or spring. The south part of the pine creek trail is steep. You go up and over the hill. The north part is more gradual. The south part does hae better scenery though
