“A rollercoaster of climbs and descents that will make you work!
— John Wolf
There is parking just north of the Route 32 bridge on the east side, enough for 8-12 cars. There's also parking at Bollingermill Road, enough for 10-15 cars. The Bollingermill lot is very much off of the main road, thus is easier to get into and out of. Whereas Route 32 is very busy and can be difficult/risky to enter/exit the parking lot.
This trail winds all along the reservoir and can be very muddy in spots. Remember to go through the mud puddles so as to not erode the environment around the trail. You get great views of the water at times and get great descents and climbs!
This trail is a mix of sand/dirt and river stone fields (which can be pretty technical, especially on a climb).
There is a three-way split toward the last 2/3-3/4 of the trail. There's one tree to the center-left that has a red blaze on it. Take the trail that is just to the right of the red-blazed tree. Making a hard right will lead you to the Deer Park Access Road
on the peninsula and making a hard left will dead-end at private property.
