Eastville Park & Snuff Mills Walk

What you'll do

There's nothing more refreshing than setting off on a crisp winter's walk when you're all cosy and wrapped up warm. Braving the outdoors and connecting with nature couldn't be easier with Bristol Steppin Sistas. This walking group promotes greater diversity, safe places for women and the power of community. Walking and wellbeing go hand in hand, so step out with this crew to give yours an instant boost - and your immune system too!

Take in soothing stretches of the River Frome, Eastville's grand Victorian park and Snuff Mills' old relics on this lovely walk. This gentle four-mile circular loop will take you from Eastville Park to Snuff Mills and back again. A hot favourite with dog walkers who want to escape the city's hustle and bustle - who can blame them when it's such a great route!

You will start at Eastville Park - a lush green space with a large ornamental lake, children's play area, woodlands and wildflower meadows. This is connected to Snuff Mills via the beautiful Frome Valley walkway. On the other side, the historic Snuff Mills at the foot of a cliff will await you. Enjoy the ruins of its 19th-century stone mill and listen to its watermill gently churning in the breeze.

This nature-filled walk leading up to a stunning waterfall is well worth every step. Not to mention all the tranquil meadows and birdsong you'll experience along the way. This is more than just a chance for some gentle revitalising exercise - gather with a group of welcoming women and discover a side to Bristol you've never seen before.

Minimum fitness level required.

About Bristol Steppin Sistas

Bristol Steppin Sistas is a community that empowers women, creating safe places for them to walk while grounding their mental and physical wellbeing. The outdoors is great for clearing the mind and enjoying good times - this is what this community is all about.

This walking group welcomes everyone regardless of their culture or race. Bristol Steppin Sistas acknowledge there's been a reluctance for women of colour to venture into unfamiliar spaces where they might feel exposed, judged or vulnerable. This walking group aims to motivate women of colour to visit rural areas around Bristol they haven't seen before and step across these boundaries in the safety and company of others who share similar experiences. Join this inclusive community celebrating Mother Nature and sisterhood around the South West's most stunning locations.

Sophie Brown

Sophie is the founder of Bristol Stepping Sistas and your qualified walk leader. Growing up in the countryside, Sophie always enjoyed exploring rural areas and found spending time in nature healing. But she recognised lots of women of colour are held back from doing the same - they might feel unsafe, judged or exposed in these unknown environments. Sophie was inspired to create safe walks where women of colour felt comfortable - Bristol Stepping Sistas was born. This growing sisterhood champions exercise, fresh air and nature with an encouraging support network at its core.

It was really enjoyable. But over too soon. I could have walked further. But would recommend any time.
