Trail Overview

The trail to Left Hand Reservoir is a nice out and back trail that leads to a good reservoir for fishing. A great trail to be surrounded by trees, mountains, and some good friends. It contains a lot of big ruts that were washed out by water to flex out your rig. The trail has lots of tree stumps, rocks, and boulders on the side that allow for some good pictures.

Difficulty

There are big ruts throughout the trail that could lead to some approach and departure angle struggles. SUV's are not recommended due to the size of the ruts. The trail allows for some technical areas that can be bypassed for smaller obstacles.
