Hay-on-Wye - Offa's Dyke Path - Dan y capel - Caenantmelyn - Hay-on-Wye
Hay-on-Wye is renowned for a number of reasons. It is known as the Book Capital of Britain - some say the world. It is also the place where the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path part company. Hay is also the centre of some of the best walking in Wales.
On this walk we start with a good climb. Offa's Dyke Path rises from Hay-on-Wye to reach the ridge of Hatteral Hill. However, we only climb as far as Cadwgan Farm before cutting through Tack Wood and starting the descent to Hay. Even as we climb up from Hay the views open out behind us, giving a good reason for a stop-and-look. After starting to lose height we drop down into Cussop Dingle to enjoy waterfalls and wildlife.
