Description

This path begins in the historic port of Bristol, and passes via Mangotsfield, Warmley and Saltford before arriving in the heart of Bath.

The route was the first major project undertaken by Sustrans and is open to walkers and cyclists with access provided for disabled users. The path also features a variety of sculptures (including a drinking giant!) and working steam engines at the old train station at Bitton.

You'll find ideal stopping points for drinks and snacks at Bitton and Warmley Stations, or you could enjoy a pub lunch at Saltford. In Bath, you'll find a variety of ways to spend the rest of your day including the Roman Baths, art galleries, shopping and Botanical Gardens.

And if the thought of the ride home seems a little too strenuous why not take the train back to Bristol Temple Meads. (Sustrans)
