Moorgreen Reservoir

2 miles (4 km)

This short walk visits Colliers Wood Nature Reserve before following footpaths to the nearby Moorgreen Reservoir.
The walk starts in the Colliers Wood car park just to the south of the reservoir. Here you can follow footpaths around the reserve's pond and woodland. It's a small reserve but very pretty, with lots of interesting flora and fauna. The large pond is a lovely place to have a picnic and look out for wildlife.
After exploring the surfaced paths of the reserve you then pick up the Broxtowe Country Way and follow it north along the B600 to the reservoir. Here you can follow more woodland trails through High Park Wood along the eastern side of the water before returning on the same path.
To extend your walk head east into the extensive woodland next to the reservoir. There's miles of tracks taking you into Morning Springs Wood near Beauvale village.
The long distance Robin Hood Way runs just to the south east of the reserve. If you pick this up and head east you can visit the pretty Mill Lakes in Bestwood Country Park.
