The reservoir is the winner here. Trails are fine, but this spot is best to swim and relax. Gorgeous backdrop.

Pond and reservoir lovely but the bugs when you went further in beyond this short trail were dreadful and stopped it being enjoyable.

Brought my dog on a walk here. This isn’t too much of a strenuous trail. Lots of areas for the dogs to swim safely. Ended my walk where I started I just forgot to hit end when I was recording. Trails are longer than shown. Not really marked, but also not hard to find your way back.

Main part of this trail is a dirt road that leads up to the scenic Chittenden Reservoir and the pond. There are a series of relatively flat, easy walking trails that circle the reservoir. There is also a small beach where you can swim or launch kayaks. Very buggy in early summer, bring bug spray. Overall easy and fun hike/walk.

Perfect easy trail. It’s short but hooks into other, almost as easy trails at the end. There’s even a port-o-potty a little less than a mile in. Beautiful views, couldn’t ask for anything more perfect if you’re looking for super simple.

Nice easy walk to Leffert's Pond. Should be beautiful during fall foliage.
