I love the trails and the fact that I can bring my dog. It is always clean and so convenient. I feel safe going by myself or with friends/family.

Every review I read here about the Reservation marvels at the fact that you can bring a dog here. Well, you can. Great. But if you hike these trails, know where you are, and what's around you. On the map there are several "ruins" marked, beginning right there near the parking lot and then all over the mountain. Not all of these are significant, but some are the ruins of Indian folk who lived in the area in the 19th century. Those interested should stop at the Mahwah Museum and look at Ed Lenik's book The Keepers of the Pass, where many of these ruins are clearly identified with the people who last lived there. Fascinating material artifacts. Kids will love seeing this stuff. Be warned, the trails are long and they're steep, but the 5 mile loop is well worth the effort.

This place is beautiful all 4 seasons. If the trails are clear you can walk during the winter. In the fall the change of leaves reflected off the water is like a photo opportunity. In the summer the coverage provided by the trees lets you walk before it gets too hot. There are dogs here, campers, young and old, individuals and groups.

My girlfriend and I have hiked this reservation before but today it was very challenging because some parts of the trail were covered in ice, which made for some difficult maneuvering on the uphill and downhill sections. We transversed up to the reservoir, which was frozen over of course. Many people were out hiking to day due to the fact that the temperature was hovering around the fifty degree mark. Overall it felt really good to be outdoors after a couple of weeks of frigid weather. There are some easy loops located here and a couple of difficult ones. I believe there are 21 miles of trails located in this reservation and five loops. I can't wait to do this in the spring!
