Marsden & The Colne Valley

Scammonden
Adjacent to the M62, this walk teeters round the edges of Scammonden Reservoir, taking in woodlands and rough pastures. There are spectacular views back down the valley from Deanhead Reservoir. The route runs mainly on unsurfaced paths and there are also some gradients, steps, boardwalks and stiles. It can also be wet and muddy so be prepared.
