Thank you Holyoke for allowing public access and maintaining this wonderful place. All kinds of birds, turtles, frogs... Always great to see people of all ages, singly and with friends and families. I don't want to praise it too much because one of the many things that makes it special is the lack of crowds. Oh wait, there are snakes! : )

Very easy, flat, gravel path that winds around the reservoir. Terrific water views and a lot of photo opportunities. Customize the length of your walk, from not much more than a mile, to maybe 6 miles, and not repeat anything. Fantastic sunsets, occasional geese. Not crowded. You can part at the Elk lodge parking area and enter at the gate. Bicycles and strollers are allowed. Plenty of room for everyone. No charge. No dogs allowed.

This is a wonderful place for a leisurely walk, or a hike of 8 miles. The scenery around the reservoir is just breathtaking. The trail is flat and easy to walk. We were there on a brisk day in late October, so there were not many walkers on the trail. But I imagine it is well traveled during the warmer weather. Definitely worh a stop if you are in the area. The length of stay is dependent upon how far around you decide to walk.

The Reservoir has recently had its main entrance on Route 202 blocked with concrete barriers and guardrails. The town of Holyoke states this is due to concerns for pedestrian safety. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out an alternative entrance. I finally discovered one near the Holyoke mall area on Lower Westfield Road. Take Lower Westfield Road (off of Homestead Avenue) and follow it up the hill. Bear right and you will see the Elks Lodge on your right. There is parking availability and the gate leading to the Reservoir allows pedestrians to come and go into the Reservoir.
