I met someone this morning for today’s hike. Manchester Reservoir is an area that she is quite familiar with as she often walks her dog here. As a matter of fact, her dog did most of the navigating.  We started from the cul-de-sac at the end of Beagle Club Road and followed the paved trail up to the dam. From here the trail turns into a dirt footpath that follows the edge of the reservoir. We stopped briefly a few times to take a few photos of the reservoir. The trail then splits. We went left away from the reservoir and slightly uphill. From this point forward we meandered through the woods occasionally seeing some boulders. I really am not sure of the exact paths that we took as I was enthralled in conversation. We essentially made a large loop through the woods which concluded by following a trail that lead back to the cul-de-sac.


I did not find a trail map on-line.
