Great walk which we've done several times. There have been some changes around waypoints 8-9 where the campsite has been extended and now comprises wooden forest holiday huts. we recommend: 8. Replace 'campsite' with 'wooden holiday huts'. 9. Reword:- At 568126 turn right to follow along the direction of electricity lines passing between areas of wooden huts. Ignore a path to the left after about 100 yards.

An enjoyable and fairly demanding forest walk with several interesting features and great views along the way. I agree that after you cross the River Wye, it is much harder to follow the markers.

Definitely an excellent walk. The route has become a little difficult to follow on the Welsh side. Thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.

An excellent walk. Good views, good information including history on the directions. Great pubs to stop in for lunch.
