Round Valley Recreation Area Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Round Valley Reservoir didn’t exist before 1958. What did exist was a natural horseshoe-shaped valley nestled in the rolling hills of Hunterdon County. Hardly anyone gave a thought to this hole in the ground—until it was filled with 55 billion gallons of water.
Today, besides providing drinking water for the surrounding area, the 70-foot-deep reservoir is used by anglers, who are hooked on the smallmouth bass, sunfish, and rainbow trout, as well as by boaters, scuba divers, swimmers, and picnickers. A year-round treasure, the reservoir also attracts winter enthusiasts who love ice sports, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding. For hikers, the recreation area offers trails ranging from very easy to moderate."
