Ashokan Reservoir

Kingston, NY

"A stroll or jog around the Ashokan reservoir is a must for panoramic views that are insta- worthy! 5.4-mile path from one end to the other."

Notes from the website:
Ashokan Reservoir, located 14 miles west of the City of Kingston in Ulster County, was created in 1915 by the construction of 5 ½ miles of dams and dikes within the Esopus Creek drainage. This 8,315 acre reservoir is a major component of the Catskill System of the New York City Water supply. The reservoir is broken into two basins by a dividing weir near its center. The Dividing Weir, pinches and separates the upper west basin from the lower east basin.
