Ogden Water

2 miles (4 km)

Enjoy fabulous views of the Pennine hills in this country park near Halifax. There is a super waterside path around the 34 acre reservoir while there are other paths leading into the surrounding moors. It's a very picturesque place with nice views across the water to the surrounding woodland and moors.
To extend your walking you can pick up a bridleway from the reservoir and head west to Warley Moor Reservoir. It's another very peaceful spot with nice views and sailboats on the water. Our Halifax Walk follows a section of the Hebble Brook which starts from reservoir and travels throughHalifaxbefore emptying into theRiver CalderatSalterhebble.
