About the trail

Follow the River Wye along the Anglo-Welsh border and across to the river’s source in Mid-Wales on a walk full of contrasts, from deep limestone gorges capped with ancient woodland to the water meadows and apple orchards of Herefordshire.

Some steep, rocky sections may provide a mild challenge, but the walk keeps primarily to easy pathways through gently undulating countryside. The Wye Valley Walk is an intensely green and enjoyable venture that walkers of all interests will enjoy.
