The town of Dursley is situated in a wooded valley under the Cotswold escarpment. The countryside around Dursley provides plenty of attractive walks including the footpaths over Stinchcombe Hill, Cam Peak and Cam Long Down where you will have wonderful views over the River Severn towards Wales and the Forest of Dean, the Malvern Hills or south towards the Seven Estuary and the Bristol area.
Dursley is situated on the Cotswold Way National Trail, the long distance trail from Chipping Camden to Bath, and is an ideal centre for walking the trail.
Every year the town hosts the 'Dursley Walking Festival', which offers a full programme of free walks for a range of abilities exploring the glorious Cotswold countryside and heritage. The Festival is organised by the Dursley Welcomes Walkers Group.
