This is a circular walk
There are a couple of short steep climbs. There is an option to go into Selsley Village for a pub stop at lunch time which will add 2.3 miles onto the walk. This decision can be made on the day by the group. We walk through Woodchester Park (National Trust) which is a very leisurely couple of miles on a well maintained path back to the car.
