Uphill Tidal Trail – Important Information

The following important information is supplied by North Somerset Council:

The recent improvements to the path along Uphill Tidal Trail have been completed as part of the extension of route 33 of the National Cycle Track, this permissive section of the route uses the footpath along the trail to join the road free sections for a pleasure route between Weston super Mare and Brean.
The development of this section of the track has been a joint venture between North Somerset Council, Greenways and Cycleroutes limited, in consultation with Natural England and the Uphill village Society. The path has already proved to be very popular!
The route takes visitors through part of Uphill Nature Reserve, managed by North Somerset Council, and Walborough Nature Reserve, managed by Avon Wildlife Trust. Both of whom are delighted with the improvements to the site and pleased that so many new people are now taking the opportunity to enjoy these sites.
Uphill Hill and Walborough are beautiful sites which are nationally important for their associated wildlife and plants. Both are designated Sites of Scientific Interest for their calcareous grassland and Carboniferous Limestone, and we both work closely with Natural England to ensure the sites are preserved and managed correctly and sensitively. This also means that both sites are grazed throughout the year. Uphill Hill is also a Green Flag site which is a mark excellence for well managed open spaces.
As part of this section of route 33’s development permissive cycling status was granted to the existing footpath. As such we ask cyclists to take extreme care when travelling through and remember this section is a footpath first and foremost. Many people already enjoy the area for its stunning views and wildlife/plants and as such the path will often have a high number of other users, including dogs and children and cattle! We ask that cyclists approach slowly and be respectful of other users. Taking into account the important grassland we ask cyclists stay to the track only and do not cut across the grass where there is no vehicle access.
Taking into consideration that these sites are grazed throughout the year there are gates through the site to protect areas of the site from the cattle and more importantly keep the cattle safely within the areas that they need to graze. Please ensure that all gates are left shut correctly after use and if you are using a mobility scooter and have taken advantage of the RADAR locks these are always left locked and secure after use.
Thank you for your consideration and we hope you continue to enjoy the sites! If you have any questions please not hesitate to contact NSC on 01934 888 802
