The Newark (DL) reservoir is just off Cleveland Ave and an easy walk or bike ride from the University. After a fairly steep climb up the flank of the reservoir, there is a smooth, wide, paved path around this artificial lake. Fine for a jog,...More

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.

This is a great place to walk to run or just observe the view. A bit of a walk up. But you will enjoy how nice it is if you're around Ur a runner it's a perfect place!

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.

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
