Description: A delightful circular walk starting in Monmouth, following Offa’s Dyke Path to Redbrook via the Kymin. We then go on and over Penallt passing through Livox wood with a return to Monmouth via Troy Farm. Two steep ascents, the first from Monmouth to the top of the Kymin, the second from Redbrook to quaint Penallt church. Well worth the climb, the extensive views from the Kymin cover the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and the Monmouthshire peaks of Sugar Loaf, Skirrid and Blorenge.

Terrain: Two steep ascents and several stiles.

For your rucksack: A packed lunch. Alternatively a refreshment stop will be made at a local pub.
