We are very fortunate to have a great training trail in my home town. The Lafayette Reservoir has an undulating, lower paved trail where the majority of walkers are found. However, the upper rim trail around the reservoir is 5 miles and has many very steep hills. I walk up a hill to the trailhead from my home to make an 8 mile round trip hike. Although we hike many local trails this is probably the one that we hike the most when not in the mountains.
