Wide open space overlooking the World Heritage City of Bath

Explore the Bath Skyline along six miles of way-marked footpaths.

Discover hidden valleys, rich in limestone flowers and tranquil beech woodlands, interspersed with extensive views over Bath and out towards the Blackdown Hills.

The Iron Age fort on Little Solsbury Hill offers the perfect vantage point for spectacular views over Bath.

The limestone grassland slopes support a variety of plants and attract a number of butterflies.

The skylark has also made its home here. Listen out for their distinctive song, a warbling of short trills, in late spring.
