Nice hike 2.4 miles around the reservoir. lots of people fishing, birthday parties occurring at picnic areas. Little hard at the end if you want to make the full loop around the dam you have to go down then back up. Very easy trail I think it's called Fishermens.
FREE ! The hike down to the lake is a bit rigorous though, and not much to do there except fish - which must be good because there were lots of people fishing there. There are picnic tables (although not with a view of the lake -- they are all down the road at the discus golf - which was... 更多

Great fishing but very crowded and there is no shade. There are also people that swim even though you aren't supposed to so if you are serious about your fishing you may have to move around some.

Great Hiking Trail around the Lake, but it is long!! Enjoyed doing this trail with our dogs and being in the outdoors! There is also fishing at this lake, but we didn't fish.
don't bother to bring the fishing poles, there is no water in the lake. Kind of sad the drought is so extreme. Keep going up the road the the hiking up the canyon is wonderful. Even have a stream to dip your toes if you choose
Went fishing there and thought it looked low but locals said it was higher than before. Nice day with a nice breeze but no luck with catching anything. Was told we were using the wrong bait... Oh well
Nice area close to Ruidoso itself. The walking trails were nice and not too crowded. The fishing was reported to be good and again, it was not crowded.
