Hollerday Hill Peak & Snowball
An energetic walk along the higher coast park to the peak of Hollerday Hill then back through Snowball.
This is one of several walks around Hollerday Hill. The hill is networked with paths and trails. This particular walk starts by following the higher coast path around the hill, then up to the peak.
Start behind Lynton’s Town Hall and follow the original driveway for Hollerday House. At the first main switch back slide right at follow the ‘Coast Path’. This is a fairly steep wooded climb which then breaks out onto the cliff edge of Hollerday Hill. As you follow the path, you will be greeted with staggering views sea views and eventually the Valley of Rocks.
From this peak, stay at the same level and walk around the hill, through the gate and then a tight left switchback which leads you to the summit of the hill. At the top of the hill is a narrow bench where you can sit and take in the magnificent views of the Valley of Rocks, Countisbury Hill, Foreland Point and the countryside between.
Start your descent though the site of the Iron Age, through the woodland of Hollerday Hill and wind your way to the start of Snowball. This is a delightful stroll that runs parallel along Lee Road, behind the Monastery of Poor Clares, then on past Lynton’s old cemetery.
The path emerges on Longmead, opposite Hulme Avenue. From here you can turn left back to Lynton or right into the Valley of Rocks.
Perfect for a extended family walk, a romantic stroll or walk with your four-legged friend.
