This walk takes in most of the parks of north west Bristol. Includes a walk along the river bank with with views of the Clifton suspension bridge and Avon Gorge. We will walk along the river bank depending on tides and river levels to Sea Mills and beyond. Then we head over to the grounds of Kings Weston House. A cafe may be open here for takeaway cake and coffee. After heading over to Blaise castle estate we will take a look at Blaise Hamlet if it is not too busy. We then take in St Mary's Parish before following a variety of forest and river paths near Hazel Brook and River Trym. On the way back to the starting point we taken in the leafy suburb of Sneyd Park. Parts of this walk will seem like you are not even in the city even though we never leave it
There may be some muddy sections and bare this in mind with the footwear you choose to wear. Trainers should fine. Please bring a packed lunch with you so we can stop and have lunch when we find a suitable beauty spot. This is reasonable walk in length, but relatively flat
