Usk Castle


This is a short but varied walk of 3 miles (5km) through farmland and woodland to the north of Usk. It loops north east through rolling hills and woodland towards Gwehelog before turning south west to follow the secluded Cwm Cayo valley back to the River Usk. You then follow the route to reach the old station before the path continues to Usk Castle and re-joins the outward route. 

No stiles and one steady climb. There is no charge for this activity. Assistance dogs only please. Wear stout shoes or boots and bring waterproof clothing.
