    Starting at Ebbor Gorge National Nature Reserve car park - This hike takes you up through the magnificent Ebbor Gorge once the site of the old river Axe full to the brim with secret nooks and hidden gems to explore. Take extra care as the climb up through the gorge is technical and requires sure footedness. Once you reach the top it's time for a rest at the viewpoint. You then continue out along the ridge and down into the village of Wookey Hole, charming and full of character with pubs if you fancy another pitstop. Then make your way back towards Ebbor Gorge through the woodland along the West Mendip Way for a short while before heading back up to the car park and picnic area.
