Great trail for doing a full lap of Rose Valley Reservoir.

Angus Dunlop

Features -none-

Description

The Lake Loop is a great trail for completing a full lap of the Rose Valley Reservoir. Runners will find the trailhead along the service road leading to Rose Valley Dam. There is a dump yard on the left approximately 150 meters from the dam, and the trailhead runs through there.

Most of the heavy lifting is in the first km of the trail, as 30+ switchbacks gain most of the elevation in the run. Luckily, the trail is well-built.

The starting section of this route shares the tread with a trail called Daze of Roses and will connect to a relatively new cut out called "Sweet Street". Once you circle the reservoir you end up at the base of Swamp Donkey which is a great ascent up and out to your vehicle at the Elementary School.
