The Herefordshire Trail, the county’s 154-mile circular walking route, is relaunching in time for the Herefordshire Walking Festival (June 18 to 26), and features two walks from Ross.

Walkers will be guided by a series of new golden way makers, with cleared pathways and a “walk the trail in a day” event on June 17 where walkers will take on all 15 sections of the trail over the day.

Section two the route called “Trail Treasures” is an 11.6-mile trek from ancient Marcle Ridge to Ross-on-Wye in the company of Norman Stanier of Dragon Orchard and environmental consultant Stef Simmons. They’ll share their love of nature on this relatively challenging hike through the terrain of ancient woodland and open meadows.

Section three is an early morning 10-mile stride from Ross-on-Wye to Little Dewchurch. Jesse Norman MP leads this walk along the river along with Ruth Waycott and Nick Critchley from Wye Valley AONB. The route begins at the two suspension bridges to the riverside hamlet of Hoarwithy.

Herefordshire Council, Herefordshire Ramblers, and Visit Herefordshire have come together to ensure that the walk is in top condition. More information can be found at visitherefordshire.co.uk
