Start & finish point: Maryport St. Car Park, Usk (SO376007).
Distance: Approx 15.5 miles
Time to walk: Approx 7 hours
Description: A long walk in a largely unexplored area of the county. This walk heads out of the pretty town of Usk to visit the hills, woodland and farmland south east of the town. There are extensive views over the Usk Valley. The walk passes through part of the Springdale farm nature reserve run by the Gwent Wildlife Trust which in autumn is known for its displays of fungi. Another treat is the recently renovated medieval farm house Allt-y-Bela. If you’re not familiar with the south west corner of the county, this is the walk to change that!
Terrain: Several steep climbs and descents and numerous stiles. Some road walking and may be muddy in places. A good level of fitness is needed for this walk.
For your rucksack: A packed lunch, drinks and of course a camera.
Price: £5 per ticket
