A circular walk from the town of Hay-on-Wye in Powys. The route leaves the town to follow a pretty path alongside the River Wye, before returning along a stretch of the former mid-Wales railway. There is lots of wildlife to enjoy along the way, chance for a paddle in the River Wye and a great opportunity to explore the narrow streets of the town which are dotted with bookshops, cafes and antique shops. The route is relatively flat, with just one steady climb up into the town towards the end. The walk follows a mixture of tarmac pavements, a stone old rail track and a grass riverside path which can get muddy after periods of rain. You will need to negotiate 3 kissing gates along the way. Sheep are sometimes grazed on The Warren so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1 hour.
