Manasquan Reservoir Perimeter Hike
<p>Copied comment, on March 1st, 2011 by <a title="View user profile." href="users/trishaz717">trishaz717</a></p> <div class="content"> <p>I did this hike several weeks ago with my dog Chachi.&nbsp; There was still snow &amp; ice on about 3/4 of the trail -- I'm glad I had my boots on.&nbsp; It is a very easy trail to walk.&nbsp; The resevoir was still frozen, so there was not much wildlife.&nbsp; Although we did see about 5 deer running along the side of the trail.&nbsp; I passed probably about 2 dozen other walkers/runners on the trail, including a cross country track team from one of the local high schools.&nbsp; I can't wait to do this walk again in the spring.</p> </div>
