Dog on lead in woodland, green foliage and cocker spaniel

Scammonden Reservoir  40 mins from Headingley

This reservoir may be close to the motorway but don’t let that fool you it’s still the perfect place for some peace and quiet. There are three car parks to choose from (check opening times) and the path follows some steep slopes but no stiles and the steps are optional. If you’re feeling fit you may want to walk up to the Deanhead reservoir, it is steep but hugely rewarding as you will be greeted with panoramic views.

All of these walks are dog-friendly and guaranteed to be beautiful!

Please follow the Countryside Code when visiting Yorkshire Water Reservoirs.

Safety Notice! During hot weather it may be tempting to jump into reservoir’s, the temperate of the deep water can cause your body to go into shock combined with the currents making it very difficult to swim. Please stay safe this summer and stay out of the reservoir. Please don’t allow dogs to swim either.
