Overview of the Walk

mountain walkWeaving through woods and open mountain you will be walking up quite a steep gradient in order to get to the top – but the views are worth it!

Classified as a “moderate” walk, this will take around 2 hours or so over paths consisting of either gravel mud or grass paths with some steep ups & downs – you can take your dog but it must be on a lead as there are sheep in the area.

How to get there:

Use the A465 Hereford Rd, then B4521 old Monmouth Rd

Guided Walks in the Beacons
