From Kerne Bridge, follow the Wye Valley Walk north before climbing Howle Hill and returning through Bishop's Wood and along the riverbank. Mostly through woodland, the walk is especially beautiful when the spring flowers are out. Lots of squirrels, rabbits and badger setts - and look out for buzzards circling high above.

This was a lovely walk - ideal for dogs as it's mostly on enclosed paths/tracks or woodland paths. At the yew tree in point 5 the path is quite overgrown, but only for a few metres. However one of the paths at point 6 was awful for about 50 metres, so I would advise wearing trousers and long sleeves. If not for the overgrown section I would have rated the walk as a five (I'm still feeling the stinging nettles!) Also, the proprietor of the garage at point 9 was not in an obliging mood, in spite of our purchase. However, we used the permissive path anyway as our parking was about to expire ??

I did this walk, coupled with 3585 to make a 13 mile loop, on 23/5/09 and it is superb. Lovely varied terrain, views, birds and wildlife - and the Inn on the Wye near Kerne Bridge is not a bad place to stop for refreshment. Recommended.
