Sunday Drive: Marilla Reservoir

Bob and I went for a drive this past Sunday (July 22).  We made four stops, while on our drive.  Yesterday’s blog post shared photographs from our first stop, which was at Sugar Bay on the Allegheny Reservoir.  A short ways from Sugar Bay we stopped for lunch at The Willows.  From The Willows we continued driving on Rt. 346 towards Bradford, Pennsylvania.   In only a few short miles we reached Marilla Reservoir.

We walked the one-mile trail surrounding the reservoir.  The trail features three wooden bridges, one of which is a covered bridge.

The trail is wide and constructed of a tightly compacted crushed gravel surface.

The majority of the trail winds through woods alongside the edge of the reservoir.

E7221903 4x6There is a gazebo, Madeline’s Birders’ Rest, located about half way around the trail.

This water bowl was located near the gazebo and right before the second wooden bridge.

Sorry, I don’t have a picture of the second wooden bridge; however, I did take a picture FROM the bridge.

I captured photographs of two butterflies and a dog on the other side of the second wooden bridge.

We arrived back at our car soon after crossing this bridge.  We enjoyed walking this trail.  I am certain that we would walk the trail often, if Marilla Reservoir were located closer to home.  It is a little over an hour’s drive from our house to Marilla Reservoir.
