The National Trust's Bath Skyline Walk is waymarked trails, passing through hidden valleys, tranquil woodlands and a patchwork of meadows rich in wildlife. There are some fantastic views of this iconic city seen from different angles. Other points of interest include the site of an Iron Age hill-fort and the 18th Century folly, Sham Castle.
We will meet centrally in Bath - the event is easily accessible for anyone reliant on public transport. From there will head up to the Bath Skyline - and we'll extend the published walk slightly by heading down into Monkton Combe before heading back to the centre of Bath.
There is a separate social event on the same evening where we'll head to the Rotary Club Fireworks in Bath. Please book on the social separately if you are coming by clicking this link.
Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:
Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour
We cannot guarantee that this route is dog friendly - there may be styles to carry your dog across.
Your dog needs to have the stamina to keep up with the group. This may be an issue on hot days.
