A circular walk in the Carding Mill Valley, Shropshire. The area around the Carding Mill Valley is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Long Mynd is an important place for wildlife. The walk covers a variety of terrain including a rugged route up a steep incline to the top of the hill, then over heather-covered hills with stunning views of the Shropshire Hills and on down a narrow valley steep in places with a drop on one side. Some areas could be muddy underfoot and some of the paths are uneven so good footwear is recommended. Some of the areas have grazing sheep so it is recommended that dogs are kept on leads. There are no stiles on route. A tearoom, gift shop and toilets are sited at the Carding Valley. Allow 3 hours. Show more

If you like walking in the woods, with heart pumping, lung busting climbing all with a stunning vista as you crest the summit, then this is the walk for you. Be prepared for the trip down (no pun intended), it's steep and precarious.Show more

A circular walk taking in Stiperstones Ridge in Shropshire, a quartzite ridge formed around 500 million years ago. The walk is a must if you are in the area on a clear day, revealing spectacular geology, impressive panoramic views, wildlife-rich upper heathland and a wealth of myths and legends. The walk up to the ridge is a decent, fairly steep climb and the ridge-top path is awkward terrain being an uneven rocky surface that will test the strength of your ankles. However if you are fit enough, it's worth the effort to get up close to the quartzite tors and for the amazing view. The top of the ridge is very exposed so please do not attempt the walk in fog and make sure you wear appropriate clothing. There are no stiles on route, just a few single gates. Dogs are welcome within the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve but must be kept on leads to protect the ground-nesting birds. The return path crosses two large fields that are likely to be holding cattle, so take care with dogs. (These fields held cows, calves and a bull; the path is well-walked and the cattle seems relaxed with dogs - but do take the usual care). For those who can't manage the climb, there is also an all-ability wide, level and wheelchair-friendly path from the car park which still gives great views - simply follow the AllTrails map in reverse, heading there and back to Waypoint 4. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours. Show more
