Saturday Riverside and Goat Gully Walk, and Drinks in The Port of Call
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
10:45am - 2pm
Today's route will follow the River Trym, then the River Avon, and end with a steep climb up the Goat Gully. Most of the walk will be at a brisk pace, but walkers can go at their own pace up the Goat Gully.
Meet outside Cafe Retreat 10.45 am onwards, for a prompt 11.00 am start. Jeff, Paul, and Roy, will be wearing yellow hi-vis tabards.
The route includes some uneven tracks, and walking boots are advisable, for grip, and for ankle support.
Dogs are welcome on the walk, and in the pub. However it is essential that any dogs are kept on leads when we go through the Goat Gully.
The walk finishes back at the cafe around 12.30 pm, and then there will be an optional five minute stroll to the Port of Call, for drinks, and/or lunch. Today's walk is free, and is a joint event with the Downs Walking Group, (a Walking for Health group), which leads free walks from Cafe Retreat, at 11.00 am every Thursday, and some Saturdays.
On Saturdays, you can park all day for free on Stoke Road, and the adjoining roads. Spaces nearest the cafe are often taken by 11.00 am, so please allow time to park further away, (e.g. on Ladies Mile, or in Saville Road), and then to walk over to the cafe.
