A circular route which is clearly marked. There re information boards at several points on the route. It is fairly flat and not too rough. There is a toilet block at the car park.

We did the circuit. A dramatic landscape, not arduous, interesting derelict buildings along the way, lots of heather, birdlife. Like how they have constructed wooden seats at various points along the route. Loved it.

A fantastic reservoir for sailing and home of Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club. A great place to learn to sail or windsurf.
