This walk is terrific but hard! We did it anti-clockwise and we used the Riverside Inn as our half-way point in Chepstow for lunch (incredible pub grub and reasonably priced outside). We found parking past the Abbey Mill on the right, roughly 10-15 spaces along the main road in two separate mini inlets. The second half of this walk, if done anti-clockwise is hard, it felt like we were walking up a dried up stream for a long time but the views are spectacular and it’s shaded 95% of the walk. In total, the walk took us 5hrs30 total

Small walk up the hill from the car park. Entry is £5.50 if you go into the farm shop to pay. Great little castle to explore with beautiful views.

Really nice trail. Steep going at first! Was very difficult to run up in places but afterwards leveled out with some superb views of the surrounding area. Loads of differing scenery that made the run enjoyable. Will be back for sure. I would suggest getting there early as the carpark fills up. Its pay and display so bring cash...

So close to the city but it feels so far. Lovey trails with lots of options. One can hike or run as much as one likes. Dog friendly. Not recommended for bikes - too many people. Lots of pubs in the area.

Parked up at Monknash carpark (£3 at the honesty box) and took this trail as part of a longer coastal walk. It is an interesting start down in the valley following Monknash Brook through a small woodland and seeing the ruins of an old cobblestone building that was slowly being reclaimed by nature. Then spectacular views down the coastline from the cliffside trail. Note that this route only takes you up to the carpark at Nash Point. It is another 500m or so up the trail to actually get to the lighthouse itself, but the views are worth it.

HikingGreat!

I completed this in the opposite direction as part of a longer walk coastal. There is less to see on the inland parts, but I still enjoyed the walk through the fields and woodland and thought it made for a nice change of scenery from the coastal views that dominate the second half of the route. There are some really spectacular views from the cliffside trail and a couple of points where it is possible to get down to the beach if the tide is out.

As per previous reviews be prepared for a busy initial start. The underpass on the road is closed which means crossing a rather dangerous road. Had to go through town centre as footpath is blocked for maintenance. First 1/2 trek was really lovely and serine walking along the river and was an easy path. Took advice when at Kymin and walked through Beaulieu forest footpaths which was much more stunning that walking on roads. Overall a lovely walk with some stunning vistas.

A beautiful coastal walk. We didn't feel like walking across the fields inland, so parked at Whitesands Bay for the day (£5) and caught the shuttle bus to St Davids's (£1.50 one way) and started from there. The first bus was at 9.35 and they seem to be hourly. Finished the walk with a nice cool swim.

A mixture of cliff top walk, woodland area and lane roads. It gets a bit confusing at times where it looks like private property and people's driveways but its actually a public footpath and part of the trail. Just follow the map.

overall a nice hike however I'd recommend using the route more of a suggested direction than try following it more precisely as there were points where it wasn't I good idea to go (overgrown or sharp drops). It will help you find the wreck though so points for that :)

What a great walk. Parking at Tidenham Chase Car Park on the B4228 make your way towards the Devils Pulpit, but turn right up Miss Gracies Lane and head up to and through Beeches Farm campsite. Enjoy that view. Pick up the Offa’s Dyke Path at the end of the campsite by going left. Once on the path go north (right) but take the path down to Brockweir after going down through the very steep meadow. Enjoy Brockweir then cross the bridge and take Wye Valley Walk through the Old Tintern Station. There is a cafe and lots of things to see there. Now head for Tintern Abbey and once finished there (cafe, restaurants, abbey mill, the abbey) cross the footbridge and make your way up the hill to the Devils Pulpit for incredible views over the Abbey. The car park is then straight back from there across the foelds and meadows.

lovely easy walk along the cliff edge. the trail stopped at a little cafe but we walked a little further right up to the lighthouse. Parked in Monknash car park where there is a £3 charge in the honesty box.

Nice run, hills are a bit too steep run up sometimes. There were some lovely views! if you have a dog it's great for them lots of woodland and fresh water, just be aware of mountain bikers around the trail.

Nice circular walk with some great views across Northern Wales. very quiet, only met a handful of people along the route. currently very dry (july 20) and easy to navigate. Definitely a moderate hike with a few decent ascents. best sections are along hill tops/offas dyke trail. Some sections north of start/finish car park have been made 1 way on account of covid/distancing. also worth noting- the drive in from mold.. last 2 miles are along a very narrow road, with few passing points. Otherwise highly recommended

Easy walk, good fun for kids & even walked from the park to castle in the stream, so take some water shoes & a towel! Theres an actual well laid out path too, ok for prams so far around but to get to the castle the pram may need a second pair of hands! If its warm day, its mostly shaded my trees so is cool on the trail! Car parks free (ch5 4JR) & theres a cafe & an asda/mcdonalds just down the road if need be.
