A reasonably undemanding but picturesque 7 mile walk from the pretty village of Wolsingham alongside Waskerley Beck before gradually gaining height over the Tunstall valley to approach the reservoir. The route back cuts through Backstone Bank wood before climbing for views over the valley. There is one long but fairly shallow incline through fields and then a short ascent by track from the reservoir to an upper path but neither are challenging. There are a couple of high stiles, though well made.
