Elton Reservoir

2 miles (2.5 km)

Enjoy an easy circular walk around this pretty reservoir in Bury. It's a nice path with good views across the water where you'll often see little sailboats. The reservoir is also surrounded by some nice rolling countryside and woodland.
You can continue to Withins Reservoir and Black Lane to extend the walk. The Irwell Sculpture Trail passes the reservoir along the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal so this is another good option.
Cyclists can reach the reservoir by following National Cycle Network Route 6 from Bury or Radcliffe, where you can pick up the Outwood Trail through Outwood Country Park.
You could also try our circular walk around Bury which visits the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal as well as the reservoir.
