Troopers Hill, St George

Troopers Hill has a wonderful landscape of rocky outcrops, heathland and acidic grassland, evolving from the sites long history of mining and quarrying. It also offers spectacular views across Bristol.


Troopers Hill is a very open reserve with good walking surfaces, although to get to the top of the reserve there is a steep climb, (unless you enter the site via Malvern Road).

How to get there...

You can get into the reserve from the corner of Greendown and Troopers Hill Road where parking is available on the roadside. You can also get to the site from Malvern Road, by walking across the playing field and through the kissing gate - this will bring you out on top of the reserve without the climb!
