Bowland Forest - Stocks reservoir
A selection of waymarked woodland footpaths and cycle routes are available to suit all abilities. The circular reservoir footpath gives visitors the chance to experience the patchwork of farmland and forestry surrounding the open waters of the reservoir itself.
The reservoir is a haven for wildlife and is one of the best sites in the North West to see a wider range of wildfowl.
Gisburn Forest to the east of the reservoir has become an important recreation destination with a range of activity opportunities for locals and visitors provided at the Gisburn Forest Hub which is managed by the Forestry Commission.
