The Metropolitan District Commission Reservoir offers easy to difficult trail conditions for many types of outdoor activities. Bikers have many options, from easy paved trails to technical single-track. Hikers have the same options as well. Winter time beckons cross-country skiers, and brave backcountry skiers. Snowshoers can have smooth runs for the fitness shoes, or wonderful views to those who prefer to rough it. Trail runners frequent the trails, and a few of those who practice Parkour\Freerunning will enjoy some of the obstacle challenges, as well as the intense runs. Climbers are warned to stay away due to strict policies on climbing, and all bikers have to wear a helmet!
The trails are on a long and thin piece of property, which is split by Rt. 44 in West Hartford. There are parking lots on both sides of 44, and most bikers park on the south side. There is also a parking lot on the very south side off Rte. 4.

CommentI recommend parking off rt 4, you dont want to make the back climb 3/4 of the way thru your ride when your legs are feelin the burn and the last thing you really want to do is hit those short and steep, or long climbs.
