My family started walking around the reservoir when I was a kid. I’m in my late 60’s now and every time I visit The Roch I make a point of coming here. Winter or summer it’s a special place.

I love running here during the summer. One lap around is about .7 miles so I am able to keep track of my distance like that. It is great to bring my dog too.
