The shores of Delaware Reservoir are the setting for this woodsy trek. You will leave the busy park marina on the Mink Run Trail, hiking the valley of Mink Run, then begin a circuit that curves out to Delaware Reservoir, where you take in some ?ne lake vistas. Next, trace old pre-lake settlement roads, looking for evidence of the area’s agricultural past, before leaving the now-wooded ?atlands. Get a second look at Mink Run before returning to the trailhead. Elevation changes are minimal.
