Overall A pretty nice hike . The reservoir was pretty and you get a nice overlook at the top. I found it to be pretty tough at point I took a few guys with me who don't really hike and they had a hard time with it. Like I said cool veiw but not nearly as good as many of the surrounding hikes. If youve done most of the near by hikes and are looking for something new I'd certainly try it out . If you haven't done Storm King mountain I'd go there first
Can be challenging or light walk depending on with path you choose. The road from the parking lot up to the reservoir is an easy walk and maybe a little under a mile and has an opportunity to overlook the Hudson Valley along the way... Stunning view. The lake at the top is so peaceful and quiet.
The second time we went on the white trail which was quite a workout.. My gosh !! Steep uphill trail which just kept going all the way to the top. There aren't really any areas that allowed any overlooks but the forest itself rises and falls and the trees are beautiful. Lots of wildlife to see along the way. You are totally engulfed in the forest on that trail. We didn't run into anyone on that trail and it was a Saturday. We went from the parking lot to white trail then to the lake and took the road back to the parking lot. About 4 miles.
