No connecting path
I've explored for a similar path in the past -- but to no avail. There is a tantalizingly wide path [although now becoming overgrown] heading south near the southeastern end of Lake Henry. It dead-ends at a stream running towards the Ramapo River. Maybe it's for the best since The Reservation is so heavily used, and Lake Henry remains blissfully isolated.

Path from Continental Soldiers Park to Ramapo Valley Reservation
Is there a path that leads from Continental Soldiers Park to Ramapo Valley County Reservation? The 2 bridges on the path around Lake Henry don't actually cross the main Ramapo river but the inlet and outlet of the lake. It looks like there should be a way (Scarlet Oak Pond is so close) but when I looked around the other day I could not find a way across the Ramapo river. Thanks.

Running
This trail makes for a nice little run.. it has about two rolling hills as well. Right now its quite muddy though.
