The route to the east follows a well-surfaced track to a width of at least 200cm. There are some gradients reaching 1:8 to access the water’s edge but most of the route is relatively flat. The first section of the route to the west passes over the dam and is unsurfaced. From here, the track is surfaced with some gradients reaching a 1:6. Grimwith Reservoir is one of the best places to see wildfowl in the
Yorkshire Dales so take along your binoculars and you might see wigeon, teal, greylag and Canada geese on the water.
