A 5.4 mile hilly walk around the community of St Arvans north of Chepstow.

On leaving the village the route travels south through the woodlands of the picturesque old Piercefield Estate before joining the Wye Valley Walk and heading north to Lower Wyndcliffe Wood. At this point the path follows the route of the 365 steps up to the Eagle’s Nest. Now high above the river the path crosses open farmland to Penterry Church and Gaer Hill before descending along a country lane back to St. Arvans. Points of interest include the Giant’s Cave, the Eagle’s Nest, Penterry Church and Gaer Hill.
