Walk Details

Due to the uneven ground in some sections the walk is ideal for a powered 4×4 wheelchair such as the TerrainHopper or Tramper.

There is a shorter alternative linear walk for less robust wheelchairs which follows the grass bank along the top of the reservoir.

Accessible toilets are available in the carpark. (RADAR)

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
