Grimwith Reservoir

To help keep everyone safe, our car park at this reservoir is closed and we're asking everyone not to visit for a little while - hopefully it won't be for too long. We'll update here when it's back open. For more information please visit our reservoirs page.

Grimwith reservoir provides stunning views of the adjacent moors, the valley and the lower Yorkshire Dales. There are plenty of opportunities for budding photographers to take a snap of the wildlife, rolling hills or sailing boats gliding across the waters.

The walk is 4.5 miles long and features a mostly well surfaced path with a few unsurfaced areas which can be muddy. There are no steps or stiles but there are some steep inclines to climb and descend.

The car park features accessible toilets. Those not fancying a walk, can simply park up and enjoy the panoramic views across the reservoir.
