This introductory (A) walk is for fit people who want to try a harder grade walk than our (B) Moderate or (C) Easy walks.
Starting from the Bristol end of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, we will head west across Leigh Woods, Ashton Court and the slopes of Clifton gorge, through woods and fields, past streams, pools and rivers, with occasional expansive views across the Bristol landscape.
The pace will be fairly fast, and should suit reasonably strong walkers. Ground conditions underfoot are likely to be quite muddy at this time of year in this area. There will be some ups and downs as we cross from the bottom to the top of the gorge a few times.
The walk will break into 4 quarters, with three short stops for elevenses, lunch break and mid afternoon snacks. Please bring a packed lunch, and ideally a sit mat or something to sit down upon while you rest for 10 minutes.
