Description

This trail can be accessed from either Islay Creek Road or Oats Peak Trail. From Oats Peak Trail, Reservoir Flats is about 0.25 miles uphill. It is the first left when going uphill. From Islay Creek Road, Reservoir Flats is about 1.0 mile from the paved road. It is the first right when going uphill.

This route is described in the downhill direction, accessed from Oats Peak Trail. From Oats Peak Trail, turn left and continue uphill for 0.25 miles. Take a left at the fork with Reservoir Flats Connector. This section is rocky, exposed, and narrow. The downhill section (the next 0.5 miles) descends into tree cover and brush encroaches on the trail. However, there are far less rocks on the downhill, making the descent pretty fast. Cross Islay Creek and climb briefly to Islay Creek Road.

This is a much more interesting way to get between Islay Creek Road and Oats Peak Trail and allows you to avoid the busy paved road.
