Explore the Bath Skyline along miles of way-marked footpaths. The Walk to the view, a circular three miles from the city centre out to the countryside and back, a circular 2 miles around the Family Discovery Trail, accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs (though there are some rocky sections), or the full six miles of the ever-popular Bath Skyline walk.
Discover hidden valleys, rich in limestone flowers and tranquil beech woodlands, interspersed with extensive views over Bath and out towards the Blackdown Hills.
The limestone grassland slopes support a variety of plants and attract a number of butterflies, great for some spring and summer wildlife spotting.
Away from the main Bath Skyline walk, the Iron Age fort on Little Solsbury Hill offers the perfect vantage point for spectacular views over Bath. The skylark has also made its home here. Listen out for their distinctive song, a warbling of short trills, in late spring.
There is also a woodland play area which will entertain the little ones for hours!
