Walk Description

From the car park, cross Stair Foot Lane and take the Public Bridleway directly opposite. Follow the bridleway through the wood, ignoring paths either side until you leave the wood. Then turn right and follow the path along the line of the trees on the edge of Headingley Golf Course to the left.

At King Lane, cross over and take the path to the right of the white house. Follow the path along three fields and turn left at a junction of paths. Ignore the path to the right near to the trees, and continue on this path past trees on the right and across a field to Eccup Moor Road.

Go over the stile and turn right. Walk along into Eccup, and past the No Through Road sign and through the gates of Bank House Farm, where soon the road becomes a bridleway and a private road. Follow this bridleway all the way along the northside of Eccup Reservoir, to eventually reach a gateway next to the entrance to Owlet Hall Farm, with a public bridleway finger post. Pass through the gateway and continue past the hall to gate onto the road. Walk along the reservoir wall. Turn right through the A frame next to the cottage.

Follow this track along the south side of the reservoir until a gate with an A frame. Go through this and turn left down Goodrick Lane. At Alwoodley Lane, cross over and turn right, then left on The Avenue. Follow this road all the way to the junction with King Lane. Cross over the zebra crossing on the left, then turn right on the walkway through the car park, to turn left on Crag Lane. At the car park for the sports club, keep right and walk through the wood, taking the first proper public footpath on the right to return to the car park.
