We started this walk from the parking area of the Broad Rock Ball Fields. There is a short bike path that leads from the fields to Old Mountain Road. We followed the bike path for about two-tenths of a mile looking for a trail on the left. We then turned at the trail and started heading downhill turning slightly to the right and passing a stone wall. We followed the trail to the bottom of the hill where it ended. We then turned right following the yellow blazed trail that loops around Indian Run Reservoir. The trail first continues through the woods before coming to a horseshoe dam and waterfall. A bridge crosses the dam. The trail then leads back into the woods on the other side of the reservoir. There are several sections of boardwalks along this stretch. After completing the short loop trail, we retraced our steps back up the trail we came in on and back to the car. We came across several ducks at the reservoir.
