Beautiful, easy hike through the woods. Paths are well maintained (though not well marked), we came across two outlook points over the reservoir, though I'm sure there are many more. It was not very crowded, and people were respectful of social distancing as we passed each other on the paths. (Though there's always that one group that seem to be unaware they are not the only ones on the planet.) Absolutely take a map, even with one we got terribly lost - and there's a lot of acreage to get lost in! But mostly just relax and enjoy!

My Boyscout son needed to plan a 5 mile hike for his next rank. I was giving blood in Easton & found that this was only 5 miles from there! It exceeded our expectations. The trail was perfect, 5.6 miles around. My 10 & 12 yo loved it. Especially when a summer rain came through and SOAKED us to the bone! Most of the trail was well-maintained, but some of it had downed trees. It was well marked for the most part also.

Beautiful preserve but as others have said, there are no maps available except for the large poster in the parking area/trail head. STRONGLY SUGGEST you take a photo with your iPhone to take with you. Even with that, we missed the turn we wanted to take and wound up far from where we wanted to be. The trails are fairly well marked but it would be nice if there were more directions at each intersection. The trails are very rocky and have many inclines where you have to climb over and around rock outcroppings. There are virtually no flat areas to walk on. It can be quite strenuous, so be aware of that.

Great place to go hiking. It is the largest park in the NYC area with over 1400 acres of land to hike. It has lakes you can hike around, miles and miles of trails, and everything you could ever want in a nature preserve. Be careful to bring a map printout to give you an idea of a destination as there are no maps available most of the time. Also, be aware the parking lot is at the end of a road - leading to a short dirt road to a roundabout parking lot. There is not a lot of parking, so it does fill up early in the day on busy days. The park is so big however that you only occasionally run into other groups on the trails.

I went on a hike here with my boyfriend and was happy to see all the trails available. Pets and bikes aren't allowed so it makes this park much less crowded. The trails are well marked and some are less maintained, so its a nice experience for people looking for a bit more of an adventurous hike. There is not a lot of parking in the lot on the south side, not sure if there is another lot however?
