Washington Valley Park - West

We recently made our way back to Washington Valley Park in Bridgewater, New Jersey, to check out the western portion of the park and the reservoir.

You can get a trail map by visiting the Somerset County Park Commission website here.

We took the White Trail to the Middle Brook Trail and followed along the reservoir to the end of the trail at the dam.  This trail was pretty flat, but narrow at times.

After we made our way back to the parking lot, we went a little ways along the Red Trail.  The Red Trail was rockier than the White Trail, with some slight ups and downs.  Our total hike was 2.5 miles.

We found the western portion of Washington Valley Park to be more crowded than the eastern portion.  There were many people fishing along the shores of the reservoir, and several mountain bikers passed us.  I'm looking forward to coming back and discovering more of the Red and White Trails and trying out the Blue Trail!
