Route Outline

A ridge walk on one of the finest parts of the Offa's Dyke path followed by a rural odyssey through typical Herefordshire countryside with grand views back to the Hergest Ridge. Starting from the quaint market town of Kington near the Welsh border, this route has much to offer. In places the route can be very wet underfoot and overgrown. Long trousers are essential and gaiters recommended in wet conditions.
