A circular walk around the northern part of the Wye Valley taking in Backbury Hill, the pretty Pentaloe Brook and the village of Mordiford. A beautifully varied route with sections of woodland, pastures, village lanes, meadows and old tracks, you will be rewarded with glorious views throughout. Mordiford is best known for the legend of its dragon which was said to drink from the confluence of the Rivers Lugg and Wye and you will see a dragon symbol on many of the waymarks along the way. The route has several climbs and descents throughout including one fairly steep ascent. The paths can be very muddy after periods of rain and can be overgrown in summer so good boots and long trousers are a must. You will need to negotiate six stiles, some of which are fairly tall for humans but all of which have gaps underneath that medium dogs should be able to pass through. There are also several gates along the way and one flight of steps. Whilst the majority of the paths are through woodland or along enclosed tracks, you will need to pass through some pastures which may be holding sheep and/or cattle. You will also be sharing the paths with lots of game birds. Approximate time 2 hours. Show more

Length: 2.4 mi • Est. 1 h 14 m
A circular walk through the woodland slopes alongside the River Wye in Herefordshire. The ancient woodland slopes are a blaze of colour with wild flowers in the spring and the beautiful River Wye is host to lots of wildlife. The walk follows a mixture of quiet country lanes (take care of the traffic on these) plus woodland/grass tracks alongside the river which can get fairly muddy after periods of rain. All of the paths are a good width and there are no stiles, gates or steps on the route. There is one long fairly steep descent along a road and a steep ascent up a stone track at the end of the walk. There are no toilet or refreshment facilities nearby, but you could bring a picnic. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours. Show more
