Blackdown rambles scrambles and gambols

( Last Updated: 19-09-2016 )

Whether you’re on two feet, two wheels or four hooves, there are ample routes to explore and enjoy the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The Blackdown Hills AONB extends from steep, wooded ridges in the north, across a high plateau to rolling farmland in the south. Rare habitats provide great opportunities for wildlife spotting, while charming villages offer a warm welcome to visitors. Challenge yourself to a climb and reap the rewards of splendid views, or take a leisurely saunter through pastures, commons, valleys, or woodland.
