Part of the Strawberry Line nature trail is closed following a landslip,
Heavy rain on Thursday and yesterday (Friday) has seen the ground fall away on to the popular cycle and walking route.
The affected area is near Winscombe and Sandford.
A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “If you’re heading out to enjoy the Strawberry Line this weekend please be aware it’s currently closed between the A368 Sandford/Winscombe and the Ilex Lane bridge - this is due to an embankment collapse following the very heavy rain on Thursday night/Friday morning.”
The Strawberry Line runs between Yatton and Cheddar, although there are talks about extending the route.
