Below we provide links to some of the local walking opportunities available.  These range from short accessible town walks through to long distance trails that cross our area – and for which Ross-on-Wye would be a great stopping point or base for a wider range of walks.
We also have a selection of circular walks from local pubs and hotels and plan to develop more in the years ahead.

Books on local walks


In addition, you may like to buy books with a selection of local walks or ones on the local history or geology of the area.  The best place to start is Rossiter's Bookshop where there is a good range and a warm welcome.


For historical guides and maps a visit to Ross Old Books in the High Street is well worth a visit
