20 circular walks all graded by route and difficulty, they can be enjoyed by the whole family and are the ideal companion for day trips and holidays.

Herefordshire is renowned for its hop-yards and cider-apple orchards, threaded by peaceful footpaths, lanes and byroads amidst rich pastures and wooded limestone ridges grazed by the famous terracotta-coloured cattle. But the county also has a wild side; the huge sandstone wall of the Black Mountains rises in the west, the Forest of Dean and the remarkable Wye Gorge fringe the south and the Malvern Hills offer a dramatic eastern boundary. With walks in and around villages, modest strolls to farmyard chapels, Wye-side meadows and windswept hilltops and longer walks into the more remote corners of this undiscovered county.
