Troopers Hill Nature Reserve is a local nature reserve in the St George area of east Bristol, and is owned by Bristol Parks. It is a hillside that has been quarried and mined in the past and overlooks the River Avon.
The hill contains a fascinating mix of history, wild plants and animals. With heather and broom, rocky crags, spoil heaps and gullies, stunning views and two listed chimneys, Troopers Hill Nature Reserve is one of the most spectacular wildlife spots in the city.
And to top this all off, Troopers Hill Nature Reserve has won the prestigious Green Flag Award every year since 2007.
