When the trail first splits from the parking lot, if you have kids, go left and follow the trail around. It's easier. Great hike!

Great easy hike, this time of year the leaves blanket the trails so the hardest part of the hike was judging your footing. Aside from that, the ground on inclines especially is very stable. Great quiet hike.

Been here many times already and its one of my favorite places for kayaking, Great scenery and the flooded forrest as I call it with its white dead trees gives you that creepy feeling and we've seen alot of wildlife, Im not to sure about the fishing, so far haven't caught anything larger than 6 inches or so, now lets not forget the people that come here are really nice and friendly.

Monksville Resovoir is an excellent place for Kayaking, took my family there and spent 5 hours enjoying this place.

Beautiful scenery, alot of wild life and one of my favorites it the is the flooded forest as I will call it with its many dead trees.

The people best of all are awesome!

we modified this hike to avoid walking the 1.2 miles on the road, so we parked on lake riconda drive and did the white to pick up red, adding just a bit.
but this hike was 11.1 miles according to my fit bit. not the 7 we figured (guide says 6.5).
we are avid, fit hikers and this terrain was tough, doing it in the fall with leave covering made it real taxing. difficult rocks, really put a physical strain on us. lastly the trails are not marked well so we strayed off a few times, even paying attention.

Great spot for kayaking and fishing, got to keep and eye for stomps near shore, may want to go really early in the morning at 6:00 am in summer time, overall a beautiful spot!!

Stumpy in spots, but a great paddle. Often referred to as skunksville by unlucky fishermen, the spot is known for its bass and muskies.
