    Walking the Wistlandpound Reservoir Trail really doesn’t have any drawbacks, as the route is fairly short, well-maintained, and easily accessible, even for those travelling with wheelchairs or pushcarts. Lovely views across the reservoir and a peaceful forest setting create a charming woodland atmosphere that will allow you to relax and reconnect with nature.
