Description

 
This park consists almost entirely of water: the 592 acre Whitehall Reservoir was once used as a source of drinking water. There is, however, a long, singletrack trail used for hiking and biking that encircles the reservoir.  Park at the boat launch and start from either direction.  The forest surrounding the reservoir provides plenty of gnarled, tangled roots to provide some technical aspect to your ride on otherwise mostly rock-free trails.  There are a couple rocky sections on the southern end of the reservoir.  Whitehall lies right across Pond Street from Upton State Forest, and the trails at the two parks can be connected.  – by Brenda Smith
