SKIP THE LOOP. The straight line into the resovior and back is great. The loop off the trail was completely gone, unmarked, and full of downed trees and burrs... ouch.

This trail name is wrong. The correct name is Dead Man's Cove trail. There is no cave, though there is a sinkhole as well as some long-buried kiln activity. Before the reservoir was created, the hill coming down what is now 146/Jarrettsville Pike was known as Dead Man's Hill. The cove that this hike goes along eventually took that hill's name after the current bridge was built and the road made more safe. This is one of my local hikes and I really enjoy both the trails and bushwhacking around the shore, where much beaver activity can sometimes be seen.

We took this trail today and it was ok. There are sections that have been clearly worn that go to the lake, the loop on the map goes into paths that are not there, overgrown so many briars. We should have just stayed on the well worn areas because trying to get a five year old and dog through the briars was awful. If we go back it's to the lake and out. We tried the recorder but had to turn it off as we started to run out of battery. There isn't a parking lot just a pull off of the road to park at a little ways down from where the map shows the trail head being.

It's an easy hike/ but not well used and overgrown. My dogs got a lot of burrs that were hard to remove, however, if more people used the trail, I think it would be a quick hike to a beautiful spot!
