Skyscraper Reservoir lies in the upper reaches of a slender valley between Woodland Mountain (11,893' - south) and unofficially named Skyscraper Peak (12,383' - north). The reservoir - no longer maintained but still partially dammed - was built between 1941 and 1947 by private landowners for downstream irrigation and sold to the City of Boulder in 1966 .From Hessie TH, walk the trail to Woodland LK and Skyscraper Reservoir.  There should be many wildflowers from Woodland Lake up to Skyscraper Reservoir. Ths is  Bobcat lite hike, It will not be a fast paced hike and the group needs to stay together.
