Route Outline

This spectacular walk exploits the varying character of the Quantock Hills to maximum effect. From the pleasant, wooded Hodder's Combe up to the bleak, exposed, ancient Drove Road on the top of the Quantocks, to a pleasant ridge walk back down to Holford, this walk has much to recommend itself.
