An easy walk, mostly along well-maintained tracks, yet with the reward of spectacular views. Access is via The Silent Valley Mountain Park and will cost you a fiver, although it’s worth the small fee as there is a large car park, toilets and even a coffee shop. picture 2 for track/5062
Silent Valley Reservoir with Doan in the distance.
From the car park follow the well-signposted path up towards the main reservoir, and besides a brief slope, mostly it’s flat terrain. picture 3 for track/5062
The views north along the reservoir are tremendous and the name really does suit – it’s as quiet as a graveyard. picture 4 for track/5062
One of the pretty, small loughs passed on the return leg.
Cross the dam and then swing south, where you’ll have the choice of several tracks weaving among the woodland and passing a couple of very small but pretty loughs, and then back to the car park. picture 5 for track/5062
Just under 3km in a leisurely 45 minutes.
