This circular walk starts at Kerne Bridge and explores the village of Goodrich before reaching the Wye at Huntsham Bridge. The main part of the walk is then through meadows and woodland alongside the river. Look for buzzards soaring overhead and, in the cliffs near Symonds Yat, falcons nesting. If you have a spare hour, Goodrich Castle is worth a visit. For refreshment, bring a picnic or take a diversion to Lydbrook for a pub lunch.

In early March 2017, a muddy early spring walk with snowdrops fading and daffodils just coming out. Lovely views and café at Symonds Yat Rock. Would have been much easier in dry conditions. Important Note: Footbridge (former railway bridge) at point 8 now closed for safety reasons perhaps on a permanent basis. Remainder of walk to Kerne Bridge now on E side of River Wye partly on moderately busy road and field paths that are less interesting than correct route on W bank.
