Cauldron Snout Walk from Cow Green Reservoir

This walk starts at Cow Green Reservoir, high in the North Pennines and skirts the reservoir to visit Cauldron Snout waterfall on an out and back walk.

Cauldron Snout is one of the landmarks on the Pennine Way, and while most of the route is along good tracks, the final section to the waterfall is rougher and requires care.
