————–
We start at the car park at Scar House Reservoir, we then head up the Nidderdale way ascending approx 150 m. On a nice day we will see beautiful views across Nidderdale and see Gouthwaite reservoir in the distance. The walk then heads to the village of Middlesmoor and then Lofthouse. Heading along the Nidderdale again we then ascend another short steep hill (100 m) up onto Dale Edge, where we will stop for lunch. We then pick up the flat esposed moorland path for 3 miles, where we then ascend back to Scarhouse reservoir crossing the weirs of the reservoir back to the car park. This walk is on good established paths but some may be stoney/gravel like. The moorland parts are exposed. The car park is free and refreshments are at the cafe until 4.30, we should be back in good time.
