Monmouthshire Pathcare Walks

The following are circular walks of different lengths spread across the varied Monmouthshire countryside. From riverside meadows to wooded hillsides, historic castles to working farmland, there should be something to suit all interests and abilities.

For each walk you can download the two page guide which includes a map of the route and brief details about the walk and any points of interest. Along the route stickers showing the walk number are used along with the plastic waymark discs to help you follow the route.

You should find these routes in good condition as Monmouthshire Countryside Service Pathcare volunteers check them regularly. If you do encounter problems, have any comments or would like to volunteer to look after a route please contact us.
