Trail Notes:

The Rim Trail is a dirt trail that circles the Lafayette Reservoir. This hike is almost 5 miles in length. Unlike the lower paved route around the reservoir, the rim trail has a lot of ups and downs, including some rather steep grade portions. Overall this trail is fairly moderate for the avid hiker, but could be quite challenging for the novice or newbie. There are two stops where water and toilet facilities are available.
