Herefordshire Waymarked Walking Trails
From gentle strolls to long distance leg-stretchers, Herefordshire has it all. Thinking about bringing a group? Take a look at the Herefordshire Walking Festivals – many festival organisers offer a hosting service to help you plan a few days in the county with your group.
Herefordshire is a glorious and diverse county to which many walkers return year after year. Herefordshire is resplendent with a year round (nearly!) programme of walking festivals and regular guided walks with local groups.
Circumnavigate the county following this 150 mile route linking the five Herefordshire market towns of Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Kington, Leominster and Bromyard. Picturesque village and hamlets, richarable red lands, apple and perry pear orchards, woodland and wild flowers, river valleys and ruins.
Throughout the trail you will see castle ruins, historic landmarks and rural churchs all combined with luxury accommodation.
Offaâ€™s Dyke Path
Step back into the past for 177 miles along the Welsh border. Discover Britain’s longest archalogical monument – the 8th century Offa’s Dyke earthwork, showcasing the changing landscapes and getting a true feel of the wildlife.
Take to the Mortimer Trail, the idyllic 30 mile walkers route that winds from Ludlow, at the Shropshire border in the north, to Kington in the south. Discover the places of medieval politics and scheming, of alliances made and alliances broken – and a bloody victory that lead to a new King of England.
There are 15 loop walks around the country and these are all clearly waymarked allowing you to take in the local heritage whilst exploring the hills and historic landmarks.
There are numerous free leaflets with all the information needed about all the routes and trails you will be taking.
