There is some climbing on this route to reach the reservoirs on the moor, but it is very gradual. Once up at the reservoirs the way is very clear and you may enjoy views of the surrounding crag-bound hills. The walk is suitable for bad weather, as it does not venture beyond well-made or well-trodden tracks and paths.

Walked 07/01/2017. Some slight confusion at the start of the walk. Script tells you to look for a bus shelter on the far side of the road after the Clarence Hotel. There is a bus shelter just before the Clarence Hotel then directly after the Hotel is a roundabout. Directly across the roundabout is a boarded up public convenience but no signs of a bus shelter but this is what you are aiming for. Apart from this no problems with navigation. Planned to amend the walk by continuing to Greenfield Reservoir then crossing over to the other side for the return leg. Unfortunately the footpath was closed due to some shooting taking place, apparently this happens regularly at weekends this time of year. On return to Dove Stone Car Park I chose to follow the Oldham Way beck to Greenfield.
