biking: ashokan reservoir

May 27, 2009

Over Memorial Day weekend, I biked on a small path along the Ashokan Reservoir about 6 miles south of Woodstock, in New York State’s Hudson Valley.  The trail is only under 2 miles long (1 mile each way), but the views are astonishing, including mountains, a valley, a creek, a dam, a bridge and a lake.  It is a very easy paved path for the family, walkers and joggers.  A picnic table is in the east parking entrance and a bench is on the west parking entrance.  For fishing, there is an access to the river on the north side of the bridge that crosses the lake.  The reservoir is stocked with lake trout, brook trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, largemouth bass, yellow perch, pumpkinseeds and black crappies.  Please note: A New York fishing license is required.
