A View of Ladybower Reservoir Walk Details
This walk from Ladybower Reservoir avoids the higher ground towards Back Tor and is all about the views down to Ladybower. The route takes you up to the Hurkling Stones on the edge of Derwent Moor, to enjoy the view, and then its back down again! Of course, with a view like this, you’ll probably take longer on that section than the rest of the walk.
The return leg takes you along the eastern shore of Ladybower Reservoir, through woodland and back to the start.
Note that the route starts from a lay-by on the A57 – but we suggest you start from the eastern end of the Ashopton Viaduct which cuts out the unnecessary road walking.
