This wonderful seven-mile circular walk begins at Ridgegate Reservoir and goes past the visitor centre at Trentabank Reservoir, where there are toilets and more parking. Then we head up through the forest to high moor and Shutlingsloe Hill, giving us a true 360-degree view. Views earned, we head all the way down to the picturesque Clough Brook, then skirt Piggford Moor and head to Oakenclough, before heading back on a quiet lane to the forest.
