Foresters Oaks - Bica Common - Cuhere Wood - Gray Hill - Foresters Oaks

This walk takes in a variety of habitats. The woodland is varied, some evergreens but mainly deciduous trees. The variety of birdlife is amazing. When I did this walk I saw goshawk and crossbills, both resident here. As well as all the usual woodland birds, expect to see buzzards and green and great-spotted woodpeckers. Some of the tracks can be muddy after heavy rain, but most are good. The views from the climb up to Gray Hill are great, while from the top of the hill the view is 360 degrees, taking in Wentwood Forest as well as the Bristol Channel.

Walked on 06.03.15. The obstructions by brambles previously reported at stage 13 in Cuhere Wood have been cleared and there is now an unobstructed way from the road up through the wood to stage 14

27/10/2012 The bridleway at Point 8 was narrow in places and appeared to be a stream for part of its length, but it was passable. However, the path at Point 13 was totally impassable; it was completely overgrown with brambles. An alternative route is to stay on the road at Point 12 and continue into the village of Llanvair Discoed. Turn right up the road next to the pub and follow this until you pass the last of the houses; look out for a footpath sign on the right, set back from the road, near the last building. Climb the hill and cross a stile set on a small bank. Continue straight on across the field to reach a stile near a memorial stone to Marie Johanna Packer - you are now at Point 15 and can follow the walk details again.

A couple of problem with this walk worth noting (June 2010) Waypoint 8 the bridleway is very difficult to negotiate due to overgrown nettles and brambles. Waypoint 13 the path shown as clear in the photo is now completely overgrown and could not be used (this ended our walk)
