Did the walk in January, which meant there was little foliage and therefore good views of the river. The downside was that the paths were muddy and slippery. No problems with following the route (our GPS measured the distance as 3.64 miles, which, as we did the walk in 1.5 hours, seemed reasonably accurate).

01/12/06 Between waymarks 2 and 3 as you approach The Giants Cave, the footpath is currently closed due to a landslip. (The notice is dated Sept 06.) You can actually proceed to the Cave - the landslip is further along the path, an alternative route is suggested to continue on The Wye Valley Walk (via the main road through St Arvans). Also a typo on Waymark 3, the distance is 1000mtrs! Very pleasant walk.
