Nature Trails

There are two trails to enjoy at Chew Valley Lake.

The Grebe trail is a hard surfaced, all weather path suitable for pedestrians, pushchairs and wheelchairs and covers a circuit 1.2km long, starting and finishing at the wooded Picnic Area.

The Bittern trail is accessible as an extension to the the Grebe trail. Follow the footbridge over Hollow Brook, the path is not surfaced and can be wet and muddy, so boots in wet weather wellies are advisable. This Trail runs along the East Shore, visits an open Bird Hide and returns to the footbridge, making a 1.5km circuit.

The guides below provide more information on the different types of wildlife you may see on your walk. Don’t forget to bring a picnic in good weather and enjoy being beside the lake.
