The Twist, College Lake, near Tring :: Shared Description

Half way along the Eastern road round the reserve there is a turning towards the Lake. Go down the slope and you get to a flat area with a number of paths leading off it.
Turn left and you get to the head of the northern track to the Octagon hide (flooded in 2014).
To the right there is a gated path which goes past the Woodell Hide.
Also to the right there is a track (closed to the public) which leads down to Juniper Valley and the Millennium Orchard.
The Twist is the path by the wooden seat that zigzags its way down the cliff in front of you and now comes to a dead end.
In 1986, when the reserve was being planned the route via Juniper Valley lead to several bird hides overlooking a couple of island. Unfortunately the water rose far higher than was anticipated, covering the islands and the sites of the hides and closing off the bottom of Juniper Valley.
The Twist was constructed to provide an alternative way down the quarry face to connect with a lower level track which itself became flooded and it now ends at the water's edge.
