A 19th century reservoir is the centerpiece of this trail. The 20-acre Marilla Reservoir is visible from almost any point on the trail. Grand pines, two stream inlets and a stonework dam surround the pool and are reflected in the water. Three wooden bridges cross the feeder streams and the spillway. This is a trail of idyllic scenes.
A gazebo, Madeline’s Birders’ Rest, can be found at the southern end of the loop. This is a great spot to enjoy your surroundings as you rest, picnic or meet with friends. The site of the gazebo is also the trailhead of the Marilla Springs Trail.
Just across Marilla Brook from the gazebo is the eastern end of the White Pines Trail. It can also be accessed from the Marilla Springs Trail.
