Wider Walks

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 downloadable local walks and plan to develop more in the years ahead.

Selection of local walks to download from other organisations:

Long distance trails:

  • Herefordshire Trail – Lovely circular 154 mile route which links the 5 market towns around Herefordshire, passing through a range of local landscapes.
  • Ross Round – A circular 18 mile route around Ross-on-Wye with aditional 12 and 15 mile loops and links to local bus services; GPS route also available.

  • Offa’s Dyke Path – 177 mile national trail following the English/ Welsh border and passing within a few miles of Ross-on-Wye

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
