Failand 10K Loop
One for a warm May's day
Elevation Gain: 244m
Route Links: Komoot | Strava
A 10k route that crosses through the three woods of Ashton Plantation, Ashton Court and Abbot's Pond with a mixture of climbs, stretches of fields and plenty of understory.
It starts on Flax Bourton Road, where there is always plenty of places to park your car, then proceeds into the Ashton Plantation woodland for a downhill stretch to the fields east of the woods.
From here we cross onto the commons above Long Ashton before cutting through to the golf course.
From the course the route cuts into Ashton Court, skirting around the MTB trails up to Beggar Bush Lane.
Then north to Abbot's Pool before cutting back west towards Failand
