OSPREY TRAIL: The Arlington Reservoir Osprey Trail leaflet is available from either the kiosk or the leaflet dispensers in the Reservoir car park. The Trail is a level circular route around the reservoir and takes about an hour to complete at a leisurely pace. Turn left on the footpath in front of the car park and follow the numbered way markers. Each marker relates to information on the map in the leaflet and points out what you are likely to spot. The leaflet also provides interesting facts and information about the reservoir, its history, why it’s here and the activities that take place on site. It may also be downloaded from SEW’s website: about-us/ our-environment/our-reservoirs
