Samaritans Way South West, Bristol to Lynton

166 km / 103 miles

Bath NES, Bristol, Devon, N Somers, Somers
A route devised by Bristol RA to raise funds for the Samaritans through sales of the publication and based on youth hostels along the way. From the Avon Gorge, the walk takes in the Chew Valley, the Mendip, Polden, Quantock and Brendon Hills, the Somerset Levels and Exmoor. There is a suggested extension of 30 miles along the coast path to Croyde from Lynton, and the River Avon Trail could be used to link the Cotswold Way National Trail at Bath with the start of this route.
