The walk explores the area around part of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Work began on the canal in 1796 near Llangattock, reaching Brecon in 1800. The southern section, including that at Goytre, was completed in 1812.

Electric mobility scooters can usually tackle the area at all times, whilst assisted large-wheel wheelchair users may be able to tackle the grassy walk sections in periods of very dry weather.

Just a short distance off the main trunk road between Pontypool and Abergavenny with bus services, the walk offers an easy public transport-linked option to reach the Goytre Wharf complex. The walk route and centre are 'barrier free' without any stiles. The walk includes two short, steep surfaced sections.

The Goytre Wharf complex includes limekilns next to the canal, where limestone and coal could be offloaded straight off the barge into the top of the kiln.
