The map is confusing and misleading. This trail runs on side roads a lot.

Awesome view but just a drive by, didn't want to walk on the side of the road and there was no woods path but the view of the water was AMAZING! I love this area in Cumberland!

This is the area where I grew up. It offers a lot of natural beauty with some working farms along the Rhode Island/ Mass border. Unfortunately the reservoir is protected and is a "No Trespassing" zone, but that never stopped us before. Good walking woods, with water views and some brooks along the way- enter at your own risk. The highlighted trail here is mostly paved roads through various neighborhoods, and some high traffic areas- not the place for some peace and quite. But if you are looking for a "Sunday Drive" through some fall foliage and want to avoid the dreaded leaf peepers of Northern New England, this may be a good place for you. Diamond Hill State Park is on this route, along with some quaint shops and local flavors.
