Steep hill to start the hike around the reservoir. Nice views from the top. White Clay trails can be accessed from the walking path around the reservoir.

love this trek, but certainly not a nature hike. the path is a wide paved road with quality asphalt. The uphill portion is a challange with a 55lb ruck. followed by a decent lap or two around the resivor. highly recommended for night trekking. the top is a great vantage point for the Newark skyline.
