A great short but fun trail with great views at the top

Don’t park in car park, your car will be broken into and belongings stolen!

Didn’t realize All Trails can give you interesting information on the way. A completely new use for All Trails!

Really good short walk although a bit manic on a Bank Holiday Monday. Parked at Black Rock and walked anticlockwise which was definitely the easier route. Lots to see and if your lucky you can bump into the local goats

we just moved to the area and wanted to see if we could this walk with our your children, unfortunately I am not so sure our 3 year old would be able to do the 2 climbs...(yet) but it's a beautiful walk and well worth it, next year maybe with the kids.

Really beautiful views of crook peak and Somerset. Quite a long stretch of road walking, but it is only a quiet country lane.

If it’s been raining even a little this trail turns from moderate to strenuous because of how slippery the rocks can get. Brace your ankles.

Nice short walk. Probably because of the recent strong rain but I had to across a little stream, without waterproof shoes you'll get your foots wet.

Sick

This walk from Chard to Ilminster is a nice reasonably short walk which can also be cycled. It has various gradients but nothing steep. It takes in some lovely scenes of the Somerset countryside. It follows the old Taunton to Chard railway line, however no tracks remain. There are several World war 2 relics left in place for example poll boxes and tank traps as well as a machine gun nest by the bridge on the Knoll st Giles road. Approximately two thirds into the walk (coming from the chard end) is the hamlet of Donyatt with its old church and very nice pub The George which comes as quite a nice stop off before carrying on to Ilminster.

A lovely trail through woodland and farmland. We cut back after half way as we were pressed for time but it was still a great walk. The paths are clear and well signposted.

Great dog walk.

Great hike that gets you a view of most of the city. The University is very relaxing and offers a vista of the entire city of Bath.

some tough uphill climbs but the views were worth it.

one of my favourite walks. 3 stiles on route and some on lead walking for dogs due to farmland but such a pretty place in the woods and the waterfalls are pretty after rainfall.

Great view, nice path.

Throughly enjoyable walk, not advised to anyone looking for a easy stroll! Very steep ups and downs, uneven surfaces with rocks to negotiate. I loved it, I would imagine it is pretty slippery in the wet so care needs to be exercised. Beautiful views of Somerset and further.

Taking into account the level of difficulty and wearing the right footwear, this path is a great hiking experience. The way is also feasible with a dog, but this should bring a little ground hardness due to the nature of the soil.

The trail is steep and I went over on my ankle a few times walking over the rocky patches! Wear some good shoes and enjoy the views! It’s a beautiful hike and not too crowded at all. We didn’t pay for the £19 pp ticket to go to the caves, museum etc. We just paid a £1 donation at the National trust visitor centre to help with the preservation of the trail, and a £5 all day parking ticket! Highly recommend for a nice 2-3 hour walk!

on Mendips Circular Walk

All around a nice and quiet way with refreshments to strengthen. Now and then you should not be confused by the missing signs, with the help of the app, the way was easy to find. The way is also on warm days great to walk with dog.

Nice way to get started. Little variance in vegetation and underground. In places, many people have been traveling.

overall a great walk alongside the river though you need to watch out for the horse flies.

Great walk with amazing views from above the gorge. Some tricky accents needed but definitely worth it. Best walk yet.
