Really nice walk! Easy to go off piste, which on a muddy day made for quite some mud skating! That said it was one of my favourite walks I have done!

We walked on a very wet day. The first part of the route to Yat Rock is straight forward. As we continued on it seemed very easy to go “off piste”, so constantly checking map to get back on track. My phone died so only partially recorded route. Good job my friend is more organised!

Fantastic area. The ferry only goes in holiday season and of course it should be Symonds Yat. Yay! The boar only tend to be a nuisance from dusk to dawn, so if you have a dog I would only go during full daylight hours.

A pleasant trail with some stunning views. Highly recommend stopping at The Saracens Head for a bite to eat or local ale on the way around. There is a hand pulled ferry operating from there on good condition days which will allow you to cross the river. Parts of the trail, near the bridge and the forest Holidays campsite are quite overgrown, but there is a way through. Views from Symonds Yay are definitely worth it.

I'd recommend peregrine walk, lots of the path was washed out due to the river being in flood. Symonds Yat rock wasn't greatly sign posted, so just keep an eye if your not referencing the map much. I mainly tried to following the wye trail from SY East, up to the rock, to Christchurch, and then back down to the suspension bridge. Most of the footpaths were difficult to find, or way points had changed to highlight different routes. Really lovely walk even though the weather was rubbish!

First to Review

A lovely walk around Lord's wood part of the Forest of Dean and heading to Symonds Yat obviously alot of the walk made up through woodland some nice views around the village of Staunton but the Wye Valley never fails to disappoint I started at Christchurch and did the loop some very steep gradients in parts Wild Boar are common so beware if you have a dog and set of early
