An enjoyable walk with some really nice views of the reservoir. We stopped at Holdens in Edgeworth for dinner and then continued our walk. Be mindful of the car park as it seems as though the ticket machine isn’t working. It also doesn’t accept card (for if it does work)

Great trail but I choose the wrong time of year. first half was just so wet and boggy even my waterproof walking boots wasnt any use. second half was drier and really enjoyable. I will have to try it again in summer and hopefully boost up my review

Lovely walk. Very muddy this time of year (nov). The portion on the rd is very exposed to busy traffic

Great place to go trail running. I start in bamber bridge and can fit in about 14km of trails heading up to Chorley and back. great if you want to just go for a walk as well. most if not all the paths are good for wheelchairs and prams.

Really enjoyed this walk, not hard going.

did this with my 7year old son,, lovely views

Lovely walk with some great views - easy to follow. A nice variety of paths across fields, down tracks and alongside the reservoirs; a small amount of time on quiet roads. A little soggy in places (there had been a lot of rain the week before) but all negotiable. Lots of off lead areas for the dog. Nice meal at the Strawbury Duck (dog friendly!) before heading back to the car.

Great and easy trail around the reservoir. Additional forest area at far side of the water if you want a longer walk. Some stairs, bridges and slopes on the forest path but clear and easy to follow. A few ruins of past buildings with information boards which add to the walk. Suitable for dogs, we took our elderly Labrador with no problems. Highly recommended!

Lovely little walk for all the family, plenty to see.

Lovely walk,the first part dogs must be on a lead then it’s dog friendly, lots of step but the views are excellent on a sunny day

easy going walk, perfect for dogs, very busy around the forest hub area but crowds thin greatly as you get further round. good views, easily doable in all weather.

Picturesque. Muddy in couple of areas...slipped over!!! Cut back to Whalley Rd to the pub :)

I would not recommend this walk! The conditions underfoot were terrible, it was very boggy and much further than stated.

Mostly walking through farmers fields and on roads but the half a mile down the river Ribble is nice. The three fishes is closed so park at the Aspinall Arms and end on a really nice lunch there. Better walk would be to follow the path in reverse starting at the Aspinall Arms up to the caravan site where there is a park and benches and nice view over the River Ribble. then head back down the same path and cross over the road to mitton hall and go down the side and back to enjoy the view of the hills. Lunch or dinner at mitton hall is also 10/10

Great family walk. My 4 year old loved it, he found a few golf balls too!

great walk and we ambled and is it in about 2 hrs on a damp morning . The section towards Stoneyhurst College was excessively muddy 'smooshy' (according to my daughter) and we should have stayed in the road 6423 back. Highly recommend

A bit dull in places but nice waterfall
