Kiosk next to parking area. $2 per person donation suggested. We donated $5 (dogs are cheap!).

Large pipe crossing the stream. Turn right at the pipe.

Number on rock just after turning right at the pipe.

Pretty "pipeline" trail. Unblazed, but easy to follow. 
A view on the unblazed trail.

Approaching the reservoir. Turn right. 
Reflections in the reservoir. The dogs were disappointed we didn't let them swim. 
View from Black Rock Mountain.
The dogs entertained two young boys on the mountain who had a million questions about them.


Turning onto Hulse Road, which gets very gravelly (is that a word??)
