Ashokan Reservoir Promenade Description

With vistas of the Catskill Mountains and a vast blue lake, the Ashokan Reservoir Promenade is a stunner. The paved pathway begins in Olivebridge, a hamlet in southeastern New York, and spans just shy of 3 miles along the reservoir's southern shoreline. Along the way, you might see bald eagles or deer on the forested slopes that surround the trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at either end of the trail. On the trail's western tip, the parking lot is available off Route 28A, just west of its intersection with Route 213. To the east, a parking lot is available off BWS Road.

Ashokan Reservoir Promenade Reviews

I live nearby and have biked and hiked this several times. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
It's not very long, but the scenery is outstanding. Fresh mountain breezes, good asphalt surface and sometimes the NYC water department runs a fountain nearby that blows cool water on hot days. Just do it.
