Great route would recommend walking up the waterfall rather than coming down so from the start point head left along the reservoir.

Great walk ..paths are easy to follow and there are nice scenic pictures of the lakes and Pennines ..highly recommend this walk

Fantastic route, took around 3hr30, some difficult scrambling up some rocks to get to the top! great views

Great trail, nice even tracks to start with. Then gets more complicated further on as you leave the trail and go cross country. I would say that while great and really enjoyable on a clear day, some parts of this hike would be very tricky in the wet and cause considerable problems without climbing gear. The stream is a rocky scramble and would be an issue with small dogs or kids, as would the very steep hills that followed, but a good pair of boots and some effort and you'll be fine. Took about 4/5 hours for the whole thing, i'd recommend a good pair of boots and you'll be fine. I would say that I had immense trouble parking, I went on a sunday in nice weather and spent 30 minutes in a que and then only got a space by blind luck. Worth the wait though in my opinion.

Stunning views, once on the tops it's pretty easy going

nice view !!

l would recommend this walk as a beginners walk. It is an easy enough walk, well signed out with some wonderful sights to see.

Beautiful and highly enjoyable walk. Wonderful views. Descended via rocky path next to stream - a few tricky steps here and there. No problem on a lovely sunny day but perhaps more challenging in wetter conditions. Took about 4 hours.

One of my fav running trails of all time

Great small hike with my son and his friend, very enjoyable

Relatively easy to walk with beautiful views

Many miles of walking available in this area. Great for dogs, suitable for children. You can make it as easy or as difficult as you like. Lovely views. On a nice day, you could just picnic by one of the reservoirs

It started a bit boring ascending slowly on tarmac/gritty road but when I jumped left into the wild I started to enjoy it. I especially enjoyed descending and the rougher bit alongside the water stream. This one is suitable for everyone... even kids on bike and wheelchairs... depending on route you take. There is a nice spot at the bottom for family picnic and some games by the reservoir.

really liked the walk and actually not as difficult as we were expecting. if you are looking to go, do try to get there early as it does get busy but you get some beautiful views.

amazing views

Me and my partner had a great day here and had a good long walk up the mountain when we were coming back down we followed the river down was a bit challenging but good fun.

great trail, also good for trail running. great views in all kinds of weather. I recently walked this at 8 months pregnant, tough but good.
