Robinswood Hill Country Park
Robinswood Hill country park is located in Gloucester, just to the south of the city centre. The walk explores the 250 acres of park which includes a Local Nature Reserve, an orchard, Robin's Wood Hill Quarry (a Site of Special Scientific Interest) and a dry ski slope. From the top of Robinswood Hill there are spectacular views of the surrounding area including the Cotswolds, the Malvern Hills, May Hill, the city of Gloucester and on a clear day the Severn Bridges.
There's several colour coded walking trails to try including the Fox Trail through the woodland and the Geology trail to the quarry. The area is also great for wildlife with foxes, badgers and red kites to look out for in the skies above.

There's an on site cafe where you can enjoy a good range of meals and snacks.
The woodland and parkland are an excellent place for a dog walk. You will probably see other dogs running around on your visit. The nearby Highnam Woods is another good local option for dog walking.
