The end has a great view of the reservoir.

Lots of mosquitoes due to some sitting rain water but there was a little breeze so it wasn't intolerable.

Nice hike and nice views of the lake.

Nice hike, convenient to OM.

While the footing is good, it is a vigorous, rolling hilly trail. You will either be climbing or descending with little to no flat areas. The first 1/3 out is right along the reservoir offering great views as you go up Miners Hill. Once past Miners hill you move away from the Reservoir into the forest. The last one third of the way out has the best views as you trace the top of the ridgeline out to the peninsula point. I did this during the summer, so I believe that once all the foliage falls off in late fall you will be rewarded more for your efforts.
