The Wye Valley and Forest of Dean Pathfinder guidebook contains 28 circular walks for all abilities. Walks are from 4km to 17km long, and each route includes a difficulty rating, route directions, an extract of the Ordnance Survey map and notes and photos of key features to look for. All of them have been created and tested by experienced walkers to help you make the most of the area.
This guide focuses on the middle and lower sections of the Wye Valley, roughly where the river leaves its upper reaches in mid-Wales to enter Herefordshire. Hay-on-Wye, Hereford and the walled town of Chepstow are also covered, as is the classic view over the winding Wye Valley from Symonds Yat. The imposing ruins of medieval castles can often be found, a striking reminder of ancient warfare in the area.
This is part of the Pathfinder series of guidebooks, which have carefully selected walks in the most popular areas of Britain.
