Landscapes for Life
Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) are some of the UK’s most cherished and outstanding landscapes.
The Wye Valley Walk runs north from Symonds Yat to Ross on Wye, passing below the cliffs of Coldwell Rocks where peregrine falcons nest, along a particularly gorgeous section of riverside walking before Lydbrook. Circular routes in this area lead to Goodrich Castle, Coppett Hill and the delightfully isolated church and Youth Hostel at Welsh Bicknor. Ross boasts several trails around the town suitable for all whilst the Herefordshire Trail and Wye Valley walk offer lovely walks north of Ross on Wye, taking in the pedestrian bridges over the Wye at Foy and Sellack.
