Monmouth to Ross-on-Wye

Update 12th October 2020:

A landslide has occurred on the footpath between Biblins bridge and Monmouth (on the rowing club side of the river). The area is very unstable and impassable. Please avoid this part of the walk until further notice.

Alternate route is along the Peregrine Path between Monmouth and Symonds Yat East (on the opposite bank)

Distance: 17-18 miles (27-29km). High point: 196m (647ft) Chase Wood.

Starting in open fields this is an almost entirely level stretch of riverside walking following the meanders of the Wye and passing under the spectacular limestone cliffs and woodlands of the upper Wye gorge. The walk passes through busy Symonds Yat with its riverside pubs, boat trips and canoeists. Then, at just over half way to Ross, there’s an abrupt change of pace, the path climbing through steeply wooded hills and narrow valleys around Leys Hill and Howle Hill, before dropping into Ross from the heights of Chase Hill.
