Torside Reservoir

4 miles (6 km)

Enjoy a circular walk or cycle around this large man made lake in the Derbyshire Peak District.
There's a good sized car park off the Woodhead Road on the southern side of the water. From here you can pick up the Longdendale Trail to take you along the water. On the northern side of the reservoir you can follow footpaths along the water if you are on foot. If you're on a bike the A628 runs above the reservoir giving great views across the area.
To extend your walk you can visit the other adjacent reservoirs. This includes Bottoms, Woodhead and Rhodeswood reservoir. You could also pick up the Pennine Way and head north to Chew Reservoir and Saddleworth Moor. The climb to Bleaklow also starts from the Torside car park. From the Bleaklow Head summit there are wonderful far reaching views over GreaterManchester,Lancashire, Cheshire and theHope Valley.
You can virtually explore the area on the google street view link below.
