A circular guided walk starting from Redbrook to The Kymin and Monmouth using Offa’s Dyke Path and the Wye Valley Walk. The walk starts with a modest uphill section from Redbrook but afterwards is generally level or downhill. There are spectacular views of the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean. The Kymin, owned by the National Trust gives good views West over Monmouth to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. Admire the Naval Temple and the Roundhouse where the well-to-do gentlemen of Monmouth dined and Nelson, our best-known naval hero, took lunch. The walk descends from the Kymin through woodlands into the historic market town of Monmouth with toilets, cafes and pubs. The return to Redbrook shadows the route of the ‘Wye Tour’ down the Wye Valley from Monmouth.
This moderate walk, mainly on good paths and tracks, is about 11 km long.
