Had beautiful autumn views of the Catskill Mountain range on our recent walk. Would love to return with a bike. As it is unshaded and paved it may be a bit much during the dog days of summer

Easy walk and great views of the mountains. I wish I could bring my dog but no animals allowed! Still worth it!

Went on a clear, hot day--there is no shade-given its paved, this is really better served as a bike path w open view on the reservoir

Nice flat paved walk with great views. I went at night to try to catch sunset & was only able to do half, but will be back during fall.

Beautiful, Amazing, and Absolutely MAGICAL! A 3.4 mile leisurely walk where you find yourself surrounded by the many high~peaked Catskills Mountains and the crystal clear water of Ashokan. There is always a gentle breeze going on carrying the fresh salty dewy morning smell and a wild rose anise breeze during sunset past the woods of the Reservoir. The walkway is full of friendly geese and sometimes deer are seen next to the hills underneath. And the water's reflective properties are truly captivating.
