Every year someone gets hurt here. You can't have fun any more. It is great for walking your dogs but stay out of the water

Nice, well marked trail with picturesque lake views along the Ridgeline Trail. Good rock bounding moments too. There are multiple trail types within the reservation from paved walking paths to hilly trails with large rocks to navigate.

Fantastic place for a walk, either on one of the many trails or if you stay on the paved road. I really enjoy a walk on one of the trails during the winter months. Great views.
