Union Valley Reservoir Day Trip

Posted by on May 12, 2013

The weather this weekend was forecast to be in the mid 90’s and we worked hard to finish our chores yesterday so we could have a little fun today. We had some nice choices, dirt bike ride, street bike ride, Sac River for lunch or maybe a road trip with the doggies to somewhere cooler. We haven’t taken a hike in a very long time so we decided a road trip was the best choice. We loaded up the dogs, packed a picnic lunch and headed east to the area of Ice House and Union Vally Reservoir. As we climbed in altitude we found a perfect 82 degrees and blue skies.  We stopped at Ice House but the lake was very high so we moved on and found a perfect spot along a river near Union Valley. We had the place all to ourselves and what a great day it was! There is an excellent bike path so we made a mental note to bring the bicycles on our next visit.

Here are a few highlights:
