About the Event


Length: 7 miles - 10 kilometres circular walk

Surface: Rough

Difficulty: Medium

Total Ascent: 500 metres

Who needs Grand Canyon?

At almost 400ft (122m) deep and 3 miles long, this is England’s largest canyon, and with its weathered crags and pinnacles, one of our most

spectacular natural sites.

It plays host to a varied community of specialised plants and wildlife, many of which you’ll get to spot on this exhilarating circular walk.

This walk will take us not only around the gorge but also via Velvet Bottom, Black Rock and you will have views of Glastonbury!

And of course, we will do a quick stop to buy some cheddar cheese from its original place of birth if the shop is open.

Trip cost includes return travel on a minibus and a hike in the Cheddar Gorge! How gorgeous!

We meet at the agreed time, drive for 2.5 - 3 hours to Cheddar Gorge where we hike for 5 hours then return home. We will make a stop at a service station for toilet and food supplies.

This is a long day out, so it is best to not have any plans for afterwards to avoid disappointment.


1 - It is your responsibility to ensure you check messages on this event and private messages sent to you before the trip starts and up to the morning of the trip.

On occasions, meeting location, time and other details might have to be changed and the event could also be cancelled last minute in case of extreme weather or other unexpected events.

2 - As with any road trip, there is a chance of heavy traffic, accidents and break-downs which could force us to skip parts of the trip, or stop it completely. We will do our best to make your day better, and of course to avoid any of these, but we expect your understanding on these occasions.
