Somerset is an excellent County for walking with varied countryside and options to suit all walkers. The hills of the Blackdowns and Mendips provide scenic options, whilst those looking for more challenging environments can test their stamina on the beautiful Quantock Hills or stunning Exmoor.
For those looking for low level walking, you cannot get much lower than the Somerset Levels and the area around Bridgewater Bay.
The County is full of historic sites and places of interest, it has a number of attractive small towns and villages which are ideal starting locations for walks.
The table below provides a link to each of my Somerset walks, or the interactive map can be used to identify a walk; this website is still in the development phase and more walks are being added every week.
