Weir Hill Reservation combines the best of woodlands, fields, and water. A hiker gets treated to views not only from the hilltop but also from the shores of beautiful Lake Cochichewick, a water-supply reservoir. The reservation got its name from the fish weirs the Indians once constructed in nearby Cochichewick Brook. The weir (usually a woven fence) would trap migrating fish on their way to the lake. Weir Hill is one of the few reservations where you can reach a scenic vista in just a ten-minute walk. Highlights: Lake, pond, hilltop views.

Trails were not marked but I had a trail map and really didn't need markers. I had a great time and have no complaints whatsoever. RM Lister
