Time: 1 hr

To get there: From downtown, take Columbia Street heading west. Turn right onto McGill Road. Continue past the Tournament Capital Centre and turn left onto Hillside Dr. Continue another 350m and turn right into the Home Depot parking lot. At the entrance to their parking lot, you should see some stalls on your left. These are reserved for people visiting Kenna Cartwright Park, so park here. Or get directions from Google Maps here.

Park in the designated area in the Home Depot parking lot. You should see a path to your left towards the entrance. Follow the Reservoir Trail until you see the gazebo at the top.  There are many detours, of varying difficulty that you can take along the way.  Sometimes we turn right onto Magpie (at the hairpin left) and then left onto Red Tail Hawk down to the gazebo.  Choose your own adventure!  Just make sure you get back on to Reservoir as this is the only path back to the parking area!

This trail is a super easy, family friendly and off-leash dog friendly! The trail leads you to a nice viewpoint, gazebo, and picnic area complete with two story outhouse!
