Stunning views quite steep and need to take care in the rain can be slippery.

A walk that tests your mapping skills. A little overgrown in places, but stunning views even though we had heavy rain from start to finish. the Town offers pubs and cafes for refreshments. A very nice walk.

Another very good trail. The straight part on the map is made of small private meadows with horses ponies and lamas. friendly come up to you and enjoy being patted and fed grass. one of the loops get into proper Bush and interesting that some of the tracks go over fences which was interesting to jump over.

Amazing little walk for those lazy days you want a quick short walk. but if it's your first time on the walk the castle is def a very good detour, and if you are a student you might want to carry you student ID join Cadw. https://www.cadwmembership.service.gov.wales

Relatively flat route bar the hill climb from the castle upwards. It's a short incline so isn't too tricky for a fit person. Not suitable for wheel chairs. Takes about an hour.

Very nice trail to walk, great for dogs and kids. You can get a pram around most of the trail but it’s quiet hard at some points and I would recommend if you can go without a pram then it’ll make the trek a lot easier. Very enjoyable walk and I will defiantly be going again

Stunning views of Tintern Abbey from Devils Pulpit.

Hard slog but worth it. The views are amazing

Really enjoyed it. plenty of encounters with wild poneys. I would advise to go up the less steep side!

We live quite close and never knew about this lovely country walk. Easy to follow with lots of open countryside and woodland walking. Whilst walking along a buzzard flew right in front of us across the river then minutes later a grey heron flew down the river. A lovely couple of hours strumble.

Cool trail! Awesome castle - do not forget to take a look into cave! OUTSTANDING views over Black Mountain part of BB and Carmarthenshire. Everything would be just perfect besides one not nice experience which I had with the owners of the farm and cafe just below Castle who manage the entrance - Castle is on official list of Dark Skies Stargazing sites but there is NOT ALLOWED to get to property afterdark. I was really rude treated when try to get there (without knowledge that is not permitted). Be aware!

nice castle, I didn't know you had to pay tho, pretty expensive but fun.

Great walk, part of a lovely estate that is very well maintained. Not very strenuous. Lovely views of the waterfalls and the robbers cave at the end of the red route is great !

Lovely place. Have to pay to get into Castle though. We paid £16 for a family of four but we we enjoyed it. Lovely walks around the area too and if you fancy it, a lovely restaurant near the castle.

An enjoyable walk. Easy on the feet while walking along side the Wye, made my joints ache on the steep descent!
