Route Filmstrip & Description

A woodland walk developed by the Neroche Landscape Partnership Scheme in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This trail has been designed and built to national ‘all ability’ access standards so it is easy for everyone to use. There are no steep gradients - the trail has a maximum gradient of 1:20 and is 2m wide with a compacted path surface. There are three wide kissing gates along the trail. The trail is suitable for all types of wheelchairs and pushchairs. New viewpoints have opened up some spectacular views across the Vale of Taunton. On a clear day you can see all the way to Wales. The two viewpoints have picnic benches and seating. This Phototrail is funded by the Blackdown Hills AONB Sustainable Development Fund and Neroche.
