What you'll do

Hike alongside the Avon river and into the AVON GORGE. Along the way, enjoy the unique ecosystem and discover why it's such an important geological site. Try out some simple nature identification ( birds, plants and mini-beasts) ; while the brave can also try some foraging. Discover a unique and usual view of one of Bristol's most iconic sites and see the CLIFTON SUSPENSION BRIDGE from below. Hear about the maverick genius ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL and his many exciting projects. Listen to the story of Vincent and Goram (and maybe see) the two medieval GIANTS that used to live in the Avon Gorge. See the CLIFTON ROCKS RAILWAY and hear about its role as a top secret base in WW2. Glimpse an IRON AGE FORT.Walk up through the National Nature reserve of LEIGH WOODS. Enjoy a wilderness of tranquility set against Brunel's famous suspension bridge. Then emerge into the sun to walk alongside the mountain bike trails towards ASHTON COURT ESTATE. Finally, walk across the suspension bridge after a brief visit to the CLIFTON BRIDGE VISITOR CENTER and enjoy a drink on a secret panoramic terrace. BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE FOREST PATHS WITH SOME UPHILL CLIMBS.

I love to hike and walk in nature and over the years I've walked most of the South West Coastal path as well as the Pembrokshire coastal path. This hike is my sanctuary and saviour in South Bristol and I'd love to share the experience with visitors. I've also lead some friends and my partner on the Northern Camino and I've walked the coast paths from the the corner of Northern Spain to the end of Austrias...twice. I can offer guidance and support on a very achievable yet wonderful adventure. There is also the possibility of doing this experience on bikes using the city bike rental scheme. Please message me if this interests you.

You will find a hidden ecology and green oasis in the nature reserve of Leigh Woods. Hopefully, glimpse some wild deer in Ashton Court and finish with a drink on a secret panoramic terrace overlooking the gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge.
