This is a great place for walking with a few different routes with varying degrees of difficulty (chew reservoir is very steep but well worth it) the park has amazing views we did on average 15-20km a day

Lovely walk around the reservoir with grandchildren and dog. Picturesque setting, beautiful scenery. Sandwich wagon and ice cream van. Only downside was the absolutely disgusting toilet block! Most people would prefer to pay for clean and fully operational facilities.
