Choose from short 0.75 mile loop (red way-marks) or 1.5 mile route (red and black way-marks). Or create your own route along the network of paths.
All day, every day.
From the eastern car park, choose one of the two short waymarked walks which are signposted. Alternatively (and particularly if you want to take in views of the reservoir), use the map in the car park to determine your own route along the network of footpaths. Beware though, lack of signage en route can make it difficult to know where you are.
There are no surfaced trails here, and some paths are prone to becoming waterlooged, so it is essential to wear wellies in winter or after rain.
Dogs are welcome and can be exercised off-lead. Owners are encouraged to 'stick and flick' poo off the path and into the wood where it can rot away naturally.
