12 Easy Walks

12 Easy Walks brochure12 Easy Walks

Easy Walks gives you a gentle introduction to the region. These 12 circular walks are intended as manageable strolls for anyone who wants to spend a short time walking without a great deal of effort. You will not need specialised clothing or state-of the-art GPS’s. You will not be expected to do acrobatics, leaping over stile after stile. You will not have to scramble up rough, steep inclines to see glorious views. The walks are mainly on clearly defined, wellworn paths, tracks and lanes which should be easy to locate. There are sketched route maps indicating the starting points, car parks, gates, as well as features of interest. The Ordnance Survey Map Grid Reference of the start is included with each map. The distance is made clear, allowing you to judge whether this walk is suitable for you. Some of the walks have optional shortcuts. We have indicated points of historic and natural interest, as well as stunning viewpoints.  These walks are aimed at:

  • Older Walkers
  • The Less Able
  • Young Families
  • Inexperienced Walkers

You can download the complete brochure or the individual walks by clicking the numbered circles on the maps or using the links below.

Locations of the 12 Easy Walks

You can see from the map that the walks cover a representative spread of both the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean. Nevertheless, with a little planning, you can easily combine two or three walks to give you a full day’s enjoyment. Although the area is densely packed with things to do and see, the distances are not at all vast.
