This 9.6-mile hike is longer than it is difficult, with a vertical rise of just 460 feet.
Turn right onto Somerset Road, about 5.3 miles west of Wilmington Village on Rt. 9. Find a parking area along with the East Branch Trail head in 2 miles. A right turn on the road intersecting the trail at 4.7 miles takes you to Somerset Reservoir (200 yards).
