Walks around the Lake/*
There are a number of walks around the lake which are described in a very useful leaflet which can be downloaded and printed for your own use.
The yellow trail is a one-mile circular stroll takes you alongside the riverbank and meandering through sessile oak woodland. There is one moderately steep hill and one steep descent.
The red trail is a 5.5 mile circular walk along forest tracks and through clearings, through conifer and birch trees. A steady climb with a steep descent at the end to the road.
The orange trails is a 1.5 mile circular walk taking you above and to the side of the lake, giving you a view that opens up to give a great vista of the lake and the straining tower.
The blue trail is a 3-mile circular walk through forest tracks and lanes with two fairly strenuous climbs and one steep descent.
The purple trail is a 5-mile circular walk along forest tracks and roads with a gentle incline and great views.
