If you physically can this is worth the climb - climb all the way to the top of the gorge and admire the views and then enjoy the walk down - it is a scramble going up for part of the way and there are several steps - worse for us as it was very wet and therefore slippery -... 更多
There are two ways to get up and enjoy the fantastic views from cliff top. The one we chose was slightly hairy as it had rained heavily the day before and tree cover had not allowed rocks to dry out and were therefore a bit slippery. The majority of the walk was no problem but the hairy bit is the... 更多
The medips AONB website has a moderate walk that takes in the gorge toward the end so you approach from the range having seen the huge views levels and lots of Somerset/Devon. You come out on the viewpoint which is an outcrop in the gorge - it's a bit of shock - not for those with a fear of heights... 更多
stunning views but an almighty trek to get there. not for those who are not very mobile, lots of down hill steps into the gorge then slippery rocks and narrow paths to get up the other side.
As any gorge in the wood, it is unexpected. Whether you go left (a climb a tortuous path) or right (stairs...) go to the cliff that you will discover in a dead-end (on your left from the stairs, straight ahead from the other path). It is marvellous. I Higly recommend it for a 1 to 2 hours trip.
You can park in the free car park just up the road from Wookey Hole for a circular walk to the gorge and back which takes only an hour - or you can lengthen the walk by doing a circular from Wookey Hole itself. We found the gorge easy to walk but would imagine it the gorge part itself could... 更多
Well worth the hassle to find the place. I kept driving in circles before I found it as the sat nav didn't seem to know the place. Went for a walk with some friends and we had young kids with us and a dog too. We have enjoyed the scenery and the lovely walk. Walked up the water fall which... 更多
I fancied a bit of a hike and an escape from London, this was just the ticket. A good drive from London but after parking the car up and putting the hiking boots on I commenced my ascent. The trail was rocky and steep but if you pack light it isn't to bad. You will be rewarded by the views... 更多
Ensure that you approach with good, sturdy footwear that grips! The red route is long and arduous and very rocky (in some places you need to use hands as well) but the view from the top is worth all of the effort in getting there (of course you could cheat and walk there from the car park). Beautifully tranquil and... 更多
