We went here during the Easter holidays and on a VERY bright and sunny day. I have lived locally all my life and ashamed that I have never been here before. We took our dog along the 'Trail' walk, which is the longer of the two on the free map available from the Cafe. The Cafe, by the way, is situated at the car park, with free toilets available there too. The cafe is dog-friendly. The car park is pay-and-display and the machine takes contactless as well as coins.
The wall took us through bracken and past a disused quarry - and also some historical quarry equipment as a sort of outdoor museum (very quirky and pleasant to come across) - and then down and down and down to the reservoir! The views are simply stunning and we took hundreds of photos. We met quite a few people but it was by no means busy. There were lots of signs warning of grazing cattle and sheep but we didn't come across any and our dog was off the lead all the way around. He absolutely loved it!
The Trail is not for the faint-hearted as the downhill is very rough and the uphill is just a long slog, but we will be back - very soon!
