Quantock Experience Walk
Time & Location
About the Event
Meeting at Hawkridge reservoir car (9.30am for a 10.00am start) park this walk will go across farmland and rural lanes via Quantock Lodge to Ramscombe, climbing up through steep woodland tracks to Triscombe Stone and Will’s Neck, the highest point in the Quantocks. The return will be via Lydeard Hill, woods and farmland, climbing to Merridge and then descending back to the car park.
This challenging and strenuous walk of some 17 kilometres (10 miles) will go through fields and woodlands, as well as open hilltop and along some lanes, where traffic will be expected. This route will be altered to avoid any forestry or agricultural operations that may be taking place. The route includes descending and climbing some steep pathways and lanes, as well as a couple of tricky road junctions, where care will be needed.
Some of the pathways will be very muddy, and some will be stony, so sturdy and waterproof footwear will be necessary, as well as clothing appropriate for the weather conditions, which could be cold and wet. While most of the tracks go through gates, there are five stiles en route.
The walk could take about six hours so you should bring a packed lunch and liquid refreshment with you.
The walk leaders will be John Crabtree and Don Hobson.
