Discover 5 Wonderful Circular Walks – Downs to Portway

October 25, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

| Free

 There are several tracks to discover to walk up or down the Avon Gorge between Portway and the Downs. There are five different routes – and the better known zig-zag path. The top and bottom of each route will be marked with flourescent banners. We have prepared a special booklet for youWalking-Festival1 to download – see below.
The paths are all, inevitably, quite steep. You will need strong shoes – and be prepared for rough surfaces and steps, some of which are un-even. As a reward, you will have a delightful woodland walk, with fantastic views. The starting points along Portway are shown on the site map, and will be marked with fluorescent flags, as will the starting points on the Downs.

The paths up the gorge are all quite steep. You will need strong shoes – and be prepared for rough surfaces and steps, some of which are uneven.
