Nice, well marked trail with picturesque lake views along the Ridgeline Trail. Good rock bounding moments too. There are multiple trail types within the reservation from paved walking paths to hilly trails with large rocks to navigate.

Breakheart is a great place to go with the family or just by yourself. It's a quiet walk through nature to clear your thoughts or to show your kids what nature is about, with many different trails to walk and the lake with a playground...More
