Three Peaks Circular Walk (Avon)

27 km / 17 miles

N Somers
An idyllic countryside walk, the 3 Peaks Circular Walk covers 16.5 miles of hilly, field-footpath terrain. The route takes you around Pensford, Clutton and Chew Magna and the ‘peaks’ are Maes Knoll, Knowle Hill and Blackberry Hill – it’s reasonably challenging, although not nearly as severe as the 3 Peaks in Yorkshire! Shorter circular walks can be made by linking to other routes, such as the Community Forest Path.
