About this walk

With its breathtaking vistas, the Dove Stone area of Saddleworth offers visitors the chance to explore part of the Peak District National Park.

There is an extensive network of footpaths and considerable moorland area with open access.

In addition there is a wheelchair circuit around the reservoir and a permanent orienteering course.

Dovestone Reservoir is the best place in Oldham to see plantation woodlands, which contain a mixture of conifer trees.

There is a car parking charge at this site.

    Beautiful walk, always see plenty of people and dogs, can usually let mine off the lead bit only when quiet. Can get into the water at some stages of the walk also.
