Start at the Church Street Parking Lot, and head South (left) along the gravel trail. When the trail splits, follow the wider fire road that bikes are allowed on, on the right. The path is flat for all but the last few tenths of a mile – one short steep hill, followed by a steep paved one up to the reservoir. Return the way you came. Round trip is 4 miles, from Church Street trailhead. For a longer hike, start at a trailhead farther North.
