DescriptionThis is a pleasant, mostly soft circuit around the reservoir, though there is a concrete section across the dam. There are mature trees around approximately 2/3 of the lake, making for a very pleasant run, and the water is particularly beautiful in the early morning sunlight. Local rowers and other watersports athletes use the lake for training, so there is always lots going on in the area. From the reservoir, you can link to the Birmingham canal network and 'Disused' trail via Sommerfield Park.
