Walk: Ogden Water

in Halifax

A lovely reservoir walk on the moorland above Halifax. A fabulous place to be tranquil and spot the local wildlife. There is a car park for vehicle users but be careful as it is a narrow single track road on approach so drive carefully.

Walk Description

The 34 acre reservoir is one of the largest in the area and the path intertwines between woodland and the water’s edge giving you an up close and personal view of the local wildlife. The path is good all the way around but there is a particularly steep section near the start/finish so be careful with accessibility challenges. You will often find boats out on the reservoir from the local sailing club and this adds to the atmosphere of the reservoir. There are several paths to take off the main circular walk but enjoy yourself just finding your own way around. Enjoy a coffee at the excellent café on site to refuel before heading home.
