Troopers Hill Bristol dog walk with Dave

Troopers Hill overlooks the city of Bristol and beyond. The Hill contains an interesting mix of history, wild plants and animals. A distinctive chimney dominates the hillside.

Our Troopers Hill Bristol dog walk is with Dave, a handsome three year old Labrador Retriever.

We start from the Troopers Hill road entrance. It is a short and reasonably steep walk to the top of the hill. The views here are amazing and it is also a great spot to watch the Bristol Balloon Fiesta.

The hill is dominated by its distinctive chimney, an old relic of the copper industry.

Dave explores the top of the hill and meets a couple of other dogs. It is then a short and flat walk along the top of the hill to Troopers field. Troopers field is great for dogs to run around. There is also a play area for children that is fenced off.

Dave had a great time! The different types of terrains make it interesting for dogs. They can play ball on the field, pick up sticks in the woods and experience different scents from the plants and wildlife.

The Troopers Hill Bristol dog walk can be extended down to Crews Hole and along the River Avon.
