Begin the hike to the City Reservoir on the Lime Mesa Trail #676. Take the trail ½ mile to the junction with the City Reservoir Trail #542. The trail follows rolling terrain up and down mesas into meadows and gulches, before descending into the City Reservoir.Campsites at the reservoir are limited. The Florida Creek drainage includes quiet pools, raging waterfalls, cascades, and interesting rock formations. The alpine meadows are full of blooming wildflowers in late July and August. This area has excellent views and photographic possibilities. As with all high-altitude areas, storms can move in rapidly, bringing severe wind, lightning, rain, snow, or hail any time of the year. Plan accordingly.
