Best places in Bristol to run with your dog
If your running buddy has four legs and a wagging tail, then Bristol is a great place to explore with many dog friendly areas, perfect for canicross! Join us as we explore the best places in Bristol to run with your dog.
A few things that unify our favourite running spots are; large areas to explore (to keep it interesting!), mostly flat ground, wide and easy to navigate paths, big enough to feel like you have your own space and great areas for your dog to run about too.
Ashton Court Estate
One of the great things about Ashton Court is its great variety of terrain, from off-track woodland running to wide tarmacked pathways with a good mixture of flat and incline to keep you entertained. Suitable for all abilities and particularly brilliant in the morning when no one is about.
Blaise Castle Estate
Hengrove Park & Hengrove Mounds Nature Reserve
Kings Weston House
Reasonably flat with small inclines. There are a number of routes you can take, with an easy circular route, through woodlands, fields and even past an impressive garden ruin. After, grab a drink at Kings Weston House Cafe and admire the view of Avonmouth and the River Severn.
Run with your dog through the stunning and ever popular Leigh Woods. Choose a steep route and challenge yourself, or stay in the flat area where you can see spectacular views of the Suspension Bridge. Very muddy in winter, you and your pup won’t leave with clean shoes or paws!
