It's a great walk, kids love it. Signage and parking are a major issue, couldn't find a clear path towards the top of th hill over looking the reservoir and surrounding towns/city.

There are pubs and café's in the nearby area, and the weather forecast looks good. Take good walking shoes, and the car park can get very busy
