Ramapo County Reservation: MacMillan Reservoir

We adopted a new puppy earlier this summer. The rescue group advised us to socialize her with as many dogs and people as possible. So when I noticed Take A Hike! NJ had scheduled a dog friendly hike at Ramapo Reservation, I decided to take Trudy and Lily.

The group followed the yellow trail to the waterfall and then continued up to MacMillan Reservoir. Some of the Labradors and golden retrievers in the group enjoyed splashing around in the water.


We’d taken this route a few weeks earlier with Trudy, Lily and a friend’s dog. The MacMillan Reservoir was originally created to supply the nearby Crocker Mansion, built in 1907. Now, people fish there or let their dogs frolic in the water.
