The Reservoir Trail Route (Orange Blazes) is a moderately challenging 5.2 mile loop around the North, Middle and South Reservoirs on the West side of the Fells. This route follows a great mix of fast and flowy forest roads as well as double and single track trails, and has a good mix of flowy downhills and punchy climbs.
