Moderate walk which is mainly flat in countryside along the river flood plain with one gentle climb. Points of interest include the Usk Bridge which was originally built in the middle ages, by Jasper Tudor, who was Duke of Bedford and Baron of Abergavenny.
The medieval bridge was joined to a parallel 19th century tramroad bridge to create the current bridge and parts of both remain.
A chain ferry used to operate between the Usk banks at Llanwenarth and Govilon.
