The water and woods are a great way to keep the kids mind and eyes busy while walking off a lunch. Nice, long hill to get you started and panoramic views of the area keep everyone moving.

There are probably nice views of the reservoir and skyline, but you need to be able to walk up a long sloping pathway. The younger ones, hike up the very steep sid. It is quite a ways up. Parking is easy.

Beautiful and very peaceful place for a evening walk around the reservoir. Unwind and collect your thoughts and you can go home and sleep like a baby!

Great views for the top of the reservoir where the main walking path is. If can can get up the incline, it's worth it. Not only is there a paved path that circles the reservoir, there are cross country trails if you want a different...More

This my second visit to Newark Reservoir. We enjoyed our time walking around at sun set. I recommend to be there at sunset in a blue sky day.

My boyfriend found this place on the app AllTrails. It was an easy walk. Not the most scenic but it would be great for running. Signs say that there's a kid playground that will be built soon. I'd go back again.
