WALKING, RIDING & CYCLING
Following winter storms the bridleways are wet and slippery in places and may be obstructed with fallen branches so proceed with care and wear suitable footwear. The Bewl Water Round Reservoir Ride is closed to cycles and horses until Spring 2014 - possibly mid-April.
Round Reservoir Route
The 12½ mile Round Reservoir Route is open to walkers all year round but closed to cycles and horses from 4th November 2013 until Spring 2014, possibly mid-April depending on ground conditions. The track passes through beautiful countryside of species rich woodland and meadow and, for part of the route, takes to quiet country lanes to circumnavigate the Nature Reserve.
Track conditions currently are very muddy and uneven underfoot so suitable footwear is essential for walkers. Cyclists should use cycles built for off road cycling when rides are open.
The walk can take up to 5 hours and there are many beautiful places to sit and enjoy a picnic - a great way to relax and unwind.
Cyclists and horse riders are requested to give way to pedestrians at all times and to avoid using the track in an unsafe manner.
Riders should keep their speed low all times both for the safety of themselves and others. Audible warning should be given of their approach to avoid startling other users.
Bewl Water Country Park is a wonderful location for sponsored walks and other charity events for further information click here.
