Simply Enter Another World

Only a short stroll from the city centre, onto the skyline hills above Bath and beyond, through miles of meadows, ancient woodlands and secluded valleys.
 
A variety of views from the walks' elevated positions offer new perspectives of Bath, nestled among tree-lined hills. The contrast of the city, so close to this rural haven, enhances the sense of tranquillity and the softness of nature’s forms, that unfurl into Bath like green fingers holding a golden stone prize, a special combination that has earned the city and its countryside setting World Heritage Site status.

This is necessary so that details can be shared in the run up to the event, including last minute changes, reminders or cancellations.
  • Charity involvement: many of our walks are being run in partnership with charities. As such, sign up information is shared with the charity involved for the purpose of running the event and communicating its purpose, which is to help raise awareness and funds for the charity. By signing up, you are agreeing to receive information from Get Outdoors and the charity.
  • Remember waterproofs, walking boots/shoes, a packed lunch and water.
  • Dogs are welcome, but are entirely the owner's responsibility, must have a lead and be under control at all times.
  • If encountering livestock do not walk too close or get between a cow and calf. If threatened, let go of your dog so it can escape and reduce the risk to yourself.

  • There are often stiles to negotiate.
  • Countryside walks often include hills and uneven terrain. Our group ethos is to support everyone in group to achieve their potential and complete the route.
