Great Wood Quantocks Walks

2 miles (3 km)

Enjoy miles of cycling and walking trails in this large area of woodland in the Quantocks. There is a red waymarked walking trail starting from the main car park which takes you to Ramscombe on good footpaths. The area has fine trees including ancient oaks, Majestic Douglas firs and Sitka spruce. There are also lovely streams and grassy glades to enjoy a picnic in. Look out for a variety of wildlife including red and roe deer, nightjar and sparrowhawk.
The wood has miles of wide paths which are excellent for mountain biking. You can easily extend your ride by continuing along the many bridleways in Seven Wells Wood or Quantock Combe.
To extend your walking in the area you could head east to Hawkridge Reservoir and enjoy circular walk around the water.
On the south western fringe of the wood you will find Wills Neck, the highest point in the Quantock Hills.
