There are probably nice views of the reservoir and skyline, but you need to be able to walk up a long sloping pathway. The younger ones, hike up the very steep sid. It is quite a ways up. Parking is easy.

This my second visit to Newark Reservoir. We enjoyed our time walking around at sun set. I recommend to be there at sunset in a blue sky day.

My boyfriend found this place on the app AllTrails. It was an easy walk. Not the most scenic but it would be great for running. Signs say that there's a kid playground that will be built soon. I'd go back again.
